Stars for Douglas County - a non-profit organization that helps support visual-arts education for Douglas County youth - is putting out a call to all artists to think about painting a star.
Professional and amateur artists are commissioned to paint large-scale sculptures of stars, which, after being auctioned off at the organization's annual fund-raising masquerade ball, become permanent fixtures at local businesses and organizations in the Douglas County area. Both artists and students have a March 14 deadline. Artist will need to submit their work on the www.Starsfordouglascounty.com website.
The organization is also looking for high school seniors who want to apply for a college scholarship. Students will find scholarship forms on that same site.
