We are happy to have a long-standing partnership with an advertising company that provides the use of three billboards in town during Youth Art Month. A district-wide contest is held for three age categories: elementary (specifically 5th grade), Jr. High (7-9th grade), and High School (10-12th grade).
A brave colleague trudged through the deep snow this morning to take photos of the roadside billboards for the display at the Museum. I will happily share her work rather than undertake this mission on my own!
From Junior High:
From the High School (yes, there is a giant cow sculpture in our town):
Honorable mentions are also awarded from each school-- these designs, rather than becoming billboards, are used for posters, programs, and postcards for the show.
Congratulations to our 2013 advertising artists! And if you are driving through Manitowoc, Wisconsin during the month of March, keep an eye out for our billboards!
