The future of art — at least, in Big Spring — is on display at Heritage Museum.
More than 100 pieces of artwork, representing the best efforts of Big Spring High School students, will be exhibited at the museum through May 17, Director Nancy Raney said.
Students whose work is on display and their family members will be admitted for free to the museum through the exhibit's run, Raney added.
The exhibit, now in its third year, is the brainchild of BSHS Art Teacher Judy Tereletsky.
“Judy came to us a few years ago and asked us if we could showcase some of her students' art,” Raney said. “And we were more than happy to do that.”
Aside from giving the public a chance to see the state of art at the local high school, the exhibit also is a thrill for the students, she noted.
“The kids are excited to see their work displayed in our gallery,” Raney said.
Tereletsky said the exhibit includes at least one piece of art from every art student at the high school.
The museum is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. For more information on the exhibit, contact the museum at 267-8255.
