Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

SOMERSUniversity of Wisconsin-Parkside invites all K through 12 student artists to participate in Art = Heart, a special exhibition hosted in the Rita Tallent Picken Regional Center for Arts and Humanities aimed at child artists. Everyone who sends in their work by the November 20 deadline will have their work included in the exhibition.

Prizes will also be given out to participants. Awards will be selected in the following categories: Best in Show, Campus Choice, Most Inventive, and Most “Heart.”

Participation is easy! Here’s how to get your art on display:

  •  Think about how being creative and making art brings you joy, comfort, peace, happiness—all things for a positive mindset.
  • Make an original artwork that can be mailed in a 9” by 12” envelope (or smaller). You may fold your piece to fit if you need to. Postcards and photos will also be accepted.
  • Write your name, school, and grade level on the front of the artwork.  
  • Mail it by Nov 20 to:

Art = Heart Exhibition
UW-Parkside Mathis Gallery
900 Wood Road
Kenosha, WI 53144

Please visit for more information. Artwork will be displayed with push-pins, pushed into the artwork to secure it to the wall. If you’d like your artwork returned after the show, include a self-addressed stamped envelope.
