MAPS High School Senior Students' Art Exhibit

March 2018

Two floors at T.B. Scott Free Library are highlighting Merrill High School Art students through early April.  In the Carnegie Building on the second floor, seven Merrill High School Art studio art senior students have selected works on display.  The pieces on exhibit consist of drawing, painting and 3D objects.  This incredible display of young talent will be on display at the library for only a short period so be sure to stop in and see these amazing works.

These students are currently in studio art and have been involved in the high school art program for four years, progressing from introductory classes to the highest available level of instruction.

The students in studio art are: Olivia Baumann, Megan Brewer, Tori Folz, Emerson Millis, Kate Peterson, Zoe Slewitzke and Devon Winn.

On the third floor, students who were enrolled in the Advanced Drawing and Painting class painted the poverty paintings on display.  These paintings were displayed around the Empty Bowls at the high school.  The students wanted to create an empathetic understanding of poverty and bring attention to everyone's moral obligation to help those in need.

The students in advanced drawing and painting are: Kaitlyn Arndt, Olivia Baumann, Joey Bean, Eliana Emmer, Dayton Frederick, Alyssa Hardrath, Bailey Iwen, Christian Matson, Emerson Millis, Elizabeth Schmidt, and Maria Wichman.

T. B. Scott Free Library’s “Beyond Books: Community ArtShare” features a new exhibit on an ongoing basis. The program was made possible by a $10,000 grant from the Mead Witter Foundation, Inc. of Wisconsin Rapids.
