(Hastings, Nebraska) — Hastings College hosted 130 students from 21 different high schools for the Jackson Dinsdale Art Center’s Mini Mural Competition on Wednesday, September 28. Each group designed a four foot by eight foot mural to fit the theme of “Tattoos: Past and Present.”

Participants had three hours to work with their classmates to create with paint the collaborative piece of artwork. The competition was judged by Hastings College senior art major Kirsten Berns and master of arts in teaching students Kyle Beaman and Lauren Shomaker Hewitt.

Kearney High School claimed first place with a mural featuring a koi fish, among other classical tattoo designs. York and Sandy Creek high schools place second and third, respectively. The top three teams each received an original glass vase created by Art Professor Tom Kreager, and all schools were allowed to keep their finished mural to hang in their high school.
