The School District issued a thank you to students in the Salida High School art programs and the National Art Honor Society for running the event at SHS.

This year is the 7th Annual Spring Collage Concert run by Salida Schools Arts Council but it has been running in one capacity or another under different names and concepts for the past 20 years.

The Salida Schools Arts Council expect between 500 to 600 attendees at this special school event. In 2019, pre-COVID, the event drew nearly 600 attendees. .

Per spokesperson Kim LeTourneau, “This is a collaborative event, and while SHS is the host campus, the artwork is featured from SHS, SMS, and LES.”

Every year Salida School District has had more than one student or at least one student in both the Performing and Visual Arts apply and receive the scholarships to continue their training in the arts.
