EVMWD and MSJC celebrate the talents of local artists

Competition allows students to express their art through water
Lake Elsinore, CA- On May 2, Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) and Mt. San Jacinto College (MSJC) will collaborate for the fourth year of the Water Wonders competition. This event celebrates the artistic talents of MSJC students and provides EVMWD with a permanent collection of artwork and photography for display at various locations around its district office.
The reception, held at the EVMWD Headquarters located at 31315 Chaney Street in Lake Elsinore, will highlight the creativity of advanced MSJC Photography and Painting Students through the theme of water.  In the painting portion of the competition, students are provided canvases of varying sizes and asked to interpret the idea of water through painting. Under the instruction of MSJC instructor Keith Hanz, the contest’s photography participants document various district facilities and local bodies of water.
“It is a district highlight and an honor to have the opportunity to display the talents of these budding artists,” said Ron Young, General Manager of EVMWD, “These students can turn the simplest of objects into amazing and beautiful pieces of art.”
The public is welcome to attend this unique competition and view the art on display from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on May 2. The awards will be given at 7:30 p.m.
Water Wonders is made possible through the support of the following sponsors: Ajit/MWH, Packard Government Affairs, Best Best & Krieger, RBF Consulting, Dudek, SAIC, Atkins, S.S. Mechanical, The KWC Companies, Inc., Leighton Consulting, Aaron Brothers, and Metalography.
