Record Sales for Friday’s Art Extravaganza

Mimicking the recent trend in the world of art sales and auctions (albeit a little short than the record billion dollars), Friday’s Yukon High School Art Extravaganza boasted record sales numbers with $1,086.50 worth of student artwork sold in only 2 1/2 hours, crushing last year’s result of $605.00 in sales in the same amount of time. An estimated 300 people attended this year’s exhibit. 

The YHS Art Extravaganza was designed, installed, and taken down by Mr. Payne’s 7th hour Art IV class with help from a few members of the YHS Art Club. A BIG THANK YOU to all the students who submitted work, helped set up the show, and those who stayed until 10 pm helping return the YHS cafeteria to its normal state. Another big thank you to Mrs. Payne of Independence Elementary School who donated 10 pizzas to serve to the guests, and Oklahoma Art Education Association (OAEA) members Isolete de Almeida, Sarah Carnes, and Frances Williams who judged this year’s show. Below is the list of awards that were given with the student’s name, title of the artwork, and the current art classes the student is enrolled in:
