Junque Yard Art exhibit scheduled to begin tonight

Macon Iron and the Middle Georgia Art Association are hosting a reception tonight to open the 11th annual Junque Yard Art Sculpture Contest at 2330 Ingleside Ave. from 6-8 p.m.

The contest includes pieces created from items collected from scrap yards. The aim was to create art with “Prehistoric Creatures,” which is this year’s theme. The contest’s winners will be awarded prizes at the reception, and people can meet the artists and view the art.

The artwork will remain on display through April 6. For more information, visit www.middlegeorgiaart.com.
