Art Walk will celebrate student works on May 18

On Friday, May 18, all three Liberty schools will join in one event that celebrates student art.

The Elementary and Middle School Art Show will be hosted by the Liberty Library (189 North Main Street) and the Liberty High School show will hosted by the Liberty Museum and Art Center (46 South Main Street) from 4-8 p.m.

Beginning at 4 p.m., students from Liberty’s National Art Honor Society will escort groups in an Art Walk along Main Street, where many exhibits will be on display. Works will include those by Liberty students and local artists. Some artists will be available to sign their work.

A fun tradition, the Art Walk process is simple — proceed at your own pace, stop at artwork that captures your fancy, stroll around main street that is peppered with photographs, paintings and drawings.

Be prepared to be surprised by the wide array of artistic styles that are represented by Liberty students, from traditional to contemporary, from still life to impressionism and more.

Additionally, the LHS Art Department will unveil its the new banners that will decorate both sides of Main Street. The banners will feature student artwork and have been made possible through a grant that the department received in April from Sullivan Renaissance.

The district’s elementary and middle school students will simultaneously display their photography at their spring art show reception at the Liberty Public Library.
