Biedenharn Museum Invites SHS Digital Design to Exhibit Work
OPSB News After a recent field trip to tour the facility and to take pictures in the garden, the museum asked Sterlington High School students to share what they came up with after their field experience. SHS obliged, sending imagery of the min-exhibit they created to Mr. Ralph Calhoun, Museum Director. They were so taken with the pieces that they invited SHS to feature their digital art at the museum for Moonlight in the Garden for the duration of the summer. The students, their parents and SHS administration received a special invitation to this wonderful community event to view the art and stroll through the gardens.
