Metro Detroit McDonalds Restaurants Host Black History Art Contest

Area high school students are invited to submit artwork to be judged in the “McDonald’s Celebrates Black History Moments on Canvas” event this month. Organizers say the artwork must portray an event, figure or moment in African-American, African or African Diasporan history.

Twelve students will be chosen to have their work displayed in a two-week gallery exhibit at the N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art in Midtown. The winners will receive a cash prize and be announced Feb. 28.

Gallery owner George N’Namdi told the Associated Press the contest will allow students to document “today’s history by expressing their impressions of black history.”
