Seventeen CGCC students honored as 2013 Artists of Promise

Seventeen students from Chandler-Gilbert Community College were selected as 2013 Artists of Promise and asked to participate in the ninth annual Artist of Promise event on April 16. The event is a gala performance and exhibition showcasing Maricopa Community Colleges' student visual art, choreography, creative writing, theatre and music competitions.

The Maricopa County Community College District sponsors annual competitions in creative writing, dance/choreography, music, visual art and theatre. The first place winners then perform their pieces for the evening's program.
