CoronadoHSArtworkCity Hall will showcase local art beginning this month with work by Colorado College and Coronado High School students.

Council has dedicated two areas of City Hall to exhibit citizen artwork — the second floor of City Hall with a newly designed gallery and the third floor in council chambers, which is dedicated for K-12 artwork.

“City Hall belongs to the people of Colorado Springs. It’s only appropriate that we kick-off City Hall’s 110th anniversary year by celebrating our citizens,” said council member Jan Martin.

The first shows in City Hall, 107 N. Nevada Ave., are studio art by the CHS students and “Two Years in Seville,” a student curated show by Colorado College studio art majors Kylie Anderson and Michale Franceschi.

An art reception, open to the public, will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Jan. 22.
