THE Art in the Park schools art competition, Through an Eye of a Child, is an innovative art initiative that aims to recognise the artistic and cultural talent of young people across the city.

Pupils are given artistic licence to represent the theme, which this year is “Our biodiversity, our treasure: Solutions to the polluted Pietermaritzburg city towards a richer biodiversity”. The aim of the initiative is to channel pupils’ positive thoughts, revealing the passion they have for art while displaying a consciousness of the environment in which they live, said Art in the Park event co-ordinator Zama Nxasana.

There will be three individual winners in the junior school and three individual winners in the senior school categories. All six winners will be presented with a certificate from Msunduzi Pietermaritzburg Tourism and 10 movies tickets to the value of R600 each. Schools should make their submissions by April 25 to Publicity House, 177 Chief Albert Luthuli Street, Pietermaritzburg.

For more information, e-mail Zama Nxasana at events@pmbtourism.co.za or phone 033 345 1348/9. Art in the Park will run from May 2 to May 6 in the National Botanical Gardens in Pietermaritzburg. The exhibition is open from 10 am to 8 pm on May 2 and May 3, 10 am to 10 pm on May 4 and May 5, and from 9 am to 4 pm on May 6.

Tickets are R40, pensioners R30 and children below 12 years enter free.

School groups are welcome by prior arrangement. The garden will be closed to the public during Art in the Park. Only ticket holders will be permitted. — Arts Editor.
