About 2018 Gifts of Gold Awardees


people gathered in lobby to view student artwork

More than 100 Wake County students ranging from kindergarteners to high school seniors are represented in the Gifts of Gold arts celebration each March. A visual component of the Pieces of Gold performing arts extravaganza, Gifts of Gold is a collaboration between Raleigh Arts, Wake County Public School System and the WakeEd Partnership.

Two- and three-dimensional student artworks submitted by Wake County art teachers are showcased at a temporary art gallery in the lobby of Memorial Auditorium at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, with an awards ceremony taking place in the same location.
