Artwork created by local high school students will soon fill the walls of the first floor lobby of the Trilogy Professional Center (1165 Imperial Drive, Hagerstown), Hager Hall Conference and Event Center (901 Dual Highway) and Washington County Public School’s Central Office building. Over 300 Washington County public high school students recently competed in the 2018 Trilogy Fine Arts Competition, the seventh such event sponsored by Trilogy Enterprises, LLC (Dr.s’ David Solberg, Andrew Oh and Mitesh Kothari), Hager Hall Conference and Event Center and Washington County Public Schools. When the Trilogy Professional Center was completed in October 2011, the group wanted to feature local art on the walls so the idea of an art competition among students was born. “We wanted an opportunity to give back to a community that has supported us so much. What better way to do that than by featuring the talents of our local youth and supporting our school programs?” says Dr. David Solberg. Judging the art on April 9 were Don Viar, museum educator at Washington County Museum of Fine Arts; Bill Davis, a local artist and former art teacher in Smithsburg; and Clifford Springer, former Montgomery County Public School teacher and administrator, art connoisseur. 36 finalists were selected, and their pieces will be displayed in the lobby of the Trilogy Professional Center, Hager Hall Conference and Event Center and Washington County Public Schools Central Office building for the next year. “Best in Show”, Second, and Third prizes were selected from that group of 36 and were announced on Monday, April 9, 2018, at an opening night exhibition at Hager Hall Conference and Event Center.
