An Evergreen staff and student juried show will be at Gallery Contempo at Washington and State Ave. during Arts Walk, and student groups will participate with The Clothesline Project at Sylvester Park on Saturday. A wide array of faculty, students, staff and alumni will present their work at numerous locations over the weekend.
