DIstrict 9 Art Show

This year, MSSU hosted the District 9, Missouri Art Educators Association show!  The District rep, my wife, Ms. Mintert, helped us organize a great show of k-12 art.  About 250 students from the area were represented.  It was a wonderful event that I think just about everybody enjoyed.  Two of my girls from Art Club came and got their pictures taken with their art.  The Show is on display till Saturday morning.
