Who: open to the public

RiverLink’s 5th annual Voices of the River Art and Poetry Contest awards reception and ceremony will be held at AB Tech’s Holly Library on Saturday March 24th from 2-5pm. This event will be open to the public. All of the submitted art & poems will be displayed, so we encourage the community to come and support the Asheville area’s up and coming young artists. We received submissions from all types of institutes and all ages, from public and charter schools, private schools, after school establishments, homeschools, and more, ages from preschool to high school– so there is great talent and variety to be displayed.

The reception will start out with a live musical performance by Eric Everett, creator of “Animal Party” and will be followed by refreshments and snacks from local businesses. We will be raffling out prizes to those who received an award in the contest. You must be present to win one of our great prizes, so be sure to stick around!

Located in Asheville’s River Arts District, RiverLink is a regional organization spearheading the economic and environmental revitalization of the French Broad River watershed as a destination where everyone can work, live and play.
