Student Artwork Heading to the Capitol

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -State Representative Larry Lee was present at Tuesday night’s St. Lucie Public Schools Board meeting to accept an original artistic rendering from Palm Pointe seventh grader Kimberly Quigley. Quigley’s watercolor entitled “An Eye On the Future” will travel with Representative Lee to Tallahassee where it will be displayed and become part of the Art in the Capitol exhibit.

Art in the Capitol is the result of a bill designed to bring attention to the arts in education.  Annually, middle school art students submit art for selection at the District level, and winning entries are displayed in the Capitol during the regular legislative session.

St. Lucie Public Schools appreciates the many contributions to the Art in the Capitol contest. Special congratulations are extended to Mariana Solanilla and Hanna Bono both from West Gate K-8 whose artwork received second and third place recognition respectively in the local Art in the Capitol competition.
