The City of Goleta is pleased to announce the winners of the City’s first Creek Week Art Contest hosted by the Goleta Valley Library. In all, 38 community members from across three different age categories turned in art submissions highlighting our creeks, watersheds, and ocean. The submissions included many different mediums including pastel, paint, watercolor, photography, collage, mixed media, charcoal, and more.
City of Goleta Mayor Paula Perotte had the challenging task of judging the artwork. She said, “It was wonderful to see all the colorful and creative submissions for this first-ever Creek Week Art contest in Goleta. All the artwork was so thoughtful and well done, which made it a very hard contest to judge! The creativity in our community is remarkable. I look forward to seeing this art contest as an SB Creek Week tradition in Goleta.”
The judging was based on relevance to the theme, overall appearance, and originality. Each category was awarded a first, second, and third place ribbon along with an honorable mention. Please help us congratulate the winners below!
