Banners on view: April 12 – May 3
Reception: Thursday, April 19, 6:30-8 p.m.
The public is invited to a special reception at the Verona Public Library on Thursday, April 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., honoring the Verona Area School District students whose artwork was chosen to be displayed on Verona’s Main Street banners.
The Verona Area Education Foundation (VAEF) partnered with the City of Verona and Verona Area School District for this project. Thirty-six student artworks representing the theme of “Hometown USA” will be reproduced on street banners hung on South Main Street this spring.
Artists will receive a certificate acknowledging their achievement, and a copy of each banner will be displayed at the library from April 12 through May 3. Artists and their families can purchase their student’s banner for $150. Local businesses will provide refreshments for the reception.
Proceeds from banner sales will benefit VAEF’s grant program, which provides funds to teachers and staff for special projects that involve creativity, community ties, and building leadership skills. Donations are appreciated. VAEF is a non-profit organization that exists on donations and volunteer help.
