Morton Creatives Create Fine Arts Fest
Morton celebrated “Youth Art Month” showcasing its student artwork at the 2017 Fine Arts Festival on Friday, March 17. The districtwide event began with a reception in the sundeck area at Morton West. The school’s culinary arts class prepared refreshments for guests to enjoy while touring through artwork created by Morton East and West students. The gallery featured artwork from visual arts, painting, photography, and AP studio art students. Morton also embraced other art forms, including videos produced by video classes, and music played by the Morton Mariachi and Orchestra musicians. Attendees who arrived by 6:30 p.m. received complimentary tickets to see the opening night performance of Morton West Theatre’s spring production, You Can’t Take It With You, later that evening. Thank you to all community members, friends, and family members for supporting our artists.
