Amber Caley, information specialist, looks over submissions for the Roswell Visitor Center’s Art Contest as the 5 p.m. submission deadline passed on Tuesday. Sixteen pieces were received — one from Albuquerque and one from Indiana, with the rest local. Allison Gray, the city’s tourism and event manager, said the art contest winner will be announced on Saturday at 3 p.m. during the UFO Festival. Caley said the center will have prize packs for the 100th, 300th and 500th person who walks into the visitors center during the festival. “The really cool thing about this art contest is that the winners get their stuff permanently displayed for everybody to come look at,” Caley said. “That’s what I’m excited for, because people don’t want to see blank walls — they want to see Roswell.” (Alison Penn Photo)
