Seven students from two Chesterfield County schools were among 15 winners in a recent art contest sponsored by the Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball team. Based on the theme “Welcome to Funnville,” works of art by these students will be displayed at The Diamond:
The students’ winning artwork will be transformed into a 4×9 foot sign and displayed on the main concourse wall at The Diamond. Each of the students will be recognized prior to the Flying Squirrels’ home-opener on April 13.
“We’re excited that the creative work of our students will be on display for all of Richmond to see,” said School Board member Dianne Smith, whose Clover Hill District includes Evergreen and Swift Creek Middle. “We’re also excited to be a part of this terrific partnership with the Flying Squirrels that encourages creativity and, as the baseball team is fond of saying, ‘funn’ in the field of arts.”
