WORCESTER – In a city burgeoning with art and culture, it’s no surprise that the 62nd Annual Arts Festival is a stunning display of the creative work being painted, drawn, and sculpted by students from the Worcester Public Schools on display at the Worcester Regional Airport.
Timmary Leary — Visual Arts Curriculum Liaison for Worcester Public Schools — and her team, have made full use of the large, industrial, sunlit space, turning it into a gallery filled with over 1,000 unique and creative works of art from every school in the district.
On Friday, May 3, the month long event was kicked off with a “Meet The Artists” reception, bringing together students, families, teachers and staff to celebrate the artists and their work.
City Manager Ed Augustus was there with remarks, including congratulations for senior students continuing their education — and their art — after commencement.
“Just incredible works of art here,” said Melissa Konan of Worcester, a parent at Forest Grove Middle School. “The kids and the community look forward to seeing their work on display every year.”
The 62nd Annual Arts Festival will be on display through May 30 at the Worcester Regional Airport. The show is open to the public during regular business hours.
