Today marks the start of a popular student art exhibit in Howell.

The 20th annual Got Art student art exhibit kicks off today at the Howell Opera House.

Organizers say Got Art is their way to promote the talents of art students throughout Livingston County and show appreciation for arts programs in local schools.

The elementary show opens on March 20th and runs through March 24th. The shows run from 4 to 8pmTuesday through Friday and from noon until 5pm on Saturday. (JM)
