“The Arts & Letters Commission is excited about our partnership with U City in Bloom for this project,” said Melcine Henderson, president of the commission, the purpose of which is to promote the arts in University City. “For years we have enjoyed the stunning, colorful gardens in our community. With the photo contest, we can share our appreciation for U City in Bloom’s 30 years of beautification.”

U City in Bloom currently tends more than 325 public gardens in University City, as well as planters in the Delmar Loop and hanging baskets on Olive St. Rd. Amateur camera buffs (adults and elementary through high school students) are invited to photograph the group’s handiwork and to enter their best images in the photo contest. A select number of contest photos will be used in the 2017 University City calendar.

The submitted photos can be seen on display from September 21-28 at Royal Bank, 8021 Olive Blvd.  Questions may be sent to the commission’s email address, ucityartsandletters@gmail.com.
