Olney Celebrates an Incredible Year of Community Art!

The Celebration of the Arts was a true showcase of our community's creativity. The Olney Spirit continues to inspire our students. They created some amazing pieces this year, and our student's musical talents were so evident in their performances. The entire Main was transformed into a gallery and students sold prints of their artwork and also a few original works were purchased by faculty and guests.

Visitors were also touched by the Olney Spirit and found themselves immersed in artistic expression. One family spent an hour in the new art wing painting together. "This is a wonderful way to spend Mother's Day," said a visitor from Wheeling.

I would like to recognize Maddie-Aerona Allen '16 for her tremendous efforts in organizing this event, as well as thank her and all who contributed to making Olney's Celebration of the Arts such a success!
