“Recycled Into Art” Artwork of Area Students




West Plains Council on the Arts (WPCA) will host an exhibition of works by area students entitled “Recycled Into Art” at the Gallery at the Center, West Plains Civic Center from Earth Day, April 22, through May 13, 2019.  The Gallery, on the mezzanine, is open to the public during regular Civic Center hours.


Students in grades 5-12 from West Plains and the surrounding rural schools will showcase their talents in this unique presentation of artwork using recycled materials. Students have been encouraged to post comments about their pieces and/or components with their artwork.


“As a central focus of Earth Day has often been recycling, we feel this exhibit will help bring home that message and allow our area students to express themselves along this important theme. We are grateful to our area art instructors, who are to be commended for including this project in this year’s curriculum,” organizers say.


Artwork will be judged on artistic creativity, use of recycled materials, and originality.


WPCA will host an Exhibit Reception on Saturday, April 27, from 2-4 p.m., in the Gallery at the Center. All are invited to attend, view and discuss these wonderful pieces.  The exhibit is co-sponsored by the West Plains Civic Center and West Plains Council on the Arts, with partial funding provided by Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
