Newly Installed Art by Twin Valley High Schoolers Unveiled at Turnpike Plaza
Newly installed art created by students from Twin Valley High School in Elverson was unveiled at the Peter J. Camiel Turnpike Service Plaza by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, according to a staff report from The Daily Local News.
The piece is a series of glazed ceramic mosaics that highlight both historical and natural sites throughout the region.
This latest installation is the twelfth artwork created thanks to the partnership between Art Spark and the turnpike commission. The goal of the partnership is to bring student-created art that is locally relevant to service plazas across the turnpike’s system.
“It’s amazing how art brings people together,” said Mark Compton, Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission CEO. “This project continues to prove how young people can use their imaginations, work together, and create something beautiful that motivates others.”
To design and create the mosaic, students worked with Jessica G. Liddell, resident teaching artist, and Heather McCord, Twin Valley High School art teacher. The artwork showcases Hopewell Furnace National Park, French Creek State Park, Daniel Boone Homestead, and Crow’s Nest Preserve.
