Tuesday, February 25, 2014

The Putnam County Museum's sixth annual Student Art Show will open Saturday, March 1 with a reception at 11 a.m.

The exhibit, which runs through April 24, will feature art from Putnam County students in grades K-12.

Every school in the county has been invited to share student art in every form -- drawings, paintings, ceramics and more. Home-schooled and private school students also have been invited to participate.

"Our student art show highlights young artistic talent throughout the county," Sarah Myers, assistant director of the Putnam County Museum, said.

The museum is located in the former Kroger building just south of the viaduct on North Jackson Street in Greencastle,.

The art show opening will begin at 11 a.m. with awards being announced 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 John Dillinger's robbery of Central National Bank, the Green Acres County Home, natural history, round barns and other exhibits showcasing Putnam County.
