The 8th annual Battle on the Green competition took place Friday night. The theme for each battle round was drawn by a member of the Green River Arts Council, and competitors had only five minutes to prepare. After five minutes of preparation, they had 30 minutes to create a work of art that was then judged by the community and a panel of judges from Trona Valley Federal Credit Union. 

The Judges' Choice for Battle on the Green was Jamie Green and the People's Choice went to Michelle Nixon.

The Green River Arts Council revealed the newest sculpture for the City of Green River, which was a Labradoodle made from reclaimed metal by the artist Jacob Novinger.

The Arts Council has asked the community to help name the sculpture. At a later date, there will be a ribbon cutting and name reveal for the sculpture.
