Student art show opens at PCM Feb. 11

Friday, February 3, 2012

The Putnam County Museum's fourth annual Student Art Show will open Saturday, Feb. 11, with a reception at 11 a.m. The exhibit will run through April 14.

The exhibit features art from Putnam County students in grades K-12. The museum solicited every school in the county, as well as home schooled and private school students, for submissions of drawings, paintings, ceramics and more.

"Our student art show highlights young artistic talent throughout the county," said PCM Executive Director Tanis Monday.

The opening will feature a performance by local folk singer Bobbie Lancaster, formerly of Bloomington, at 11:30 a.m.

The mission of the Putnam County Museum is to collect, preserve, and interpret the natural, historical and cultural heritage of the county and its people through education, exhibits and special programs. Its permanent collection of more than 2,000 Putnam County artifacts offers county residents and visitors a historical overview of the county.

Permanent exhibits highlight the former Prevo's department store, John Dillinger's raid on Central National Bank, the Green Acres county home, natural history and round barns.

The museum's upcoming exhibit celebrating the 175th anniversary of the founding of DePauw University will open Feb. 16.

Putnam County Museum is located on North Jackson Street in Greencastle, in the former Kroger building.
