Hidden Gems in Winooski: A Student Show
May

to May 24

Hidden Gems in Winooski: A Student Show

On display for two weeks only! Exhibited artwork created by Winooski High School Students from the Foundations Art class.

The artwork has been inspired by a postcard sent from a traveler in 1913 that was just passing through Winooski. Students want others to see the places they hold dear to them that are overlooked or not know by passerby.

Students photographed their favorite places in Winooski and then created acrylic paintings to highlight these “hidden gems” in Winooski, their home.
