The Marshall County Conservation Board is currently featuring a "Repurposed Roses" artwork display by West Marshall sixth12th-grade art students. Visitors will enjoy a unique look at Iowa's state flower, the wild rose.
West Marshall Art teacher Lori Sogge challenged the students to create rose-themed art projects from repurposed materials. The task was open to student interpretation by selecting a 2-D or 3-D design with at least 50 percent of the end product made of repurposed materials. The designs vary from realistic-looking roses to abstract variations.
The public is invited to view the unique "Repurposed Roses" student artwork at the Grimes Farm and Conservation Center, 2359 233rd St., through the end of August. The Grimes Farm and Conservation Center is open 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays.
“Repurposed Roses,” by West Marshall students, will be on display at the Grimes Farm and Conservation Center until the end of August.
