Art students create centerpieces for chamber of commerce luncheon Art pieces will be showcased at the event on Dec. 17

The Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce offered Mr. Jared Ogden‘s Art program to produce 15 art pieces to showcase at the Board of Trustees 2016 Installation Luncheon on Dec. 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The pieces had to be completed by Dec. 15.

“I had a lot of fun creating my landmark because it challenged my art ability. I hope they like it,” senior Toniatiuh Gomez said.

Chamber of Commerce selected four schools to collaborate on this project; Ogden’s art program was the only high school selected to participate.

“I’m not sure why they only selected four schools or why we’re the only high school that got picked, but I thought it was pretty cool that we get to work on something like this,” Ogden said.

The company provided the art materials for the students to produce the art pieces. The students used the following materials to build their Las Vegas landmark themed pieces: wooden blocks, tinker toys, Legos, etc.

“I’ve always found Las Vegas landmarks to be appealing, so being able to work on an art piece centered on one was a lot of fun,” senior Beatrix Cacao said.
