It the fifth year the district has benefited from the art-focused event, as local artists including art teachers, decorated large pieces. It's the first year that so many schools will share in the money, Superintendent Nicholas Gledich said.

This year's recipients: Audubon Elementary, Grant Elementary, Hunt Elementary, West Middle and Tesla Educational Opportunity Center.
