You won’t see boring metal fences at two local construction sites. Miron Construction Co., Inc. is displaying 120 pieces of artwork from local children on the construction fences at the Fox Cities Exhibition Center and Erb Park construction sites.
More than 650 pieces of artwork were created by Appleton Area School District third and fourth grade students this past fall. Many of those creations have already been displayed throughout the city, including at The Building for Kids Children’s Museum.
The Big Arts in the Little Apple program brings art and music together. Students were challenged to listen to a musical poem, “Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life),” composed by Richard Strauss and create art inspired by the orchestral arrangement. The effort was made possible thanks to a partnership by The Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra and The Building for Kids Children’s Museum.
