Of great interest will be a display of 40 “Mesquite Coyotes” that have been decorated by local businesses and offices. Those coyotes will be standing at their doors, June 1-25, welcoming customers to the businesses. Everyone is invited to vote for their favorite critter by turning in a ballot at the Gallery by June 25. The Coyote “pack” will be gathered together on the Art Center plaza for the June 27 reception, and the coyote voted “Leader of the Pack” will receive a trophy and prize from Virgin Valley Artists Association, the contest sponsor.
