Crosswalk Talk

The Waverly Advanced Art students have been painting the city of Waverly's crosswalks. This project is not only a way to get involved in the community but also to better it. This group of students will be traveling to NYC in April and are working very hard to raise the funds needed. Just by being out in the community and sharing their artistic talents there have been many donations  already made to make this trip possible. We still have along way to go but are so very grateful to all that have donated. The crosswalk project has been such a great thing for this community. It has created a close working relationship between members of the community, business owners, the police department, city council, and of course the Waverly high school students. There are four already completed located at the court house square between 2nd and market. One is the scale of justice, the second is a colorful cow, pig, and chicken, that are referencing Beast and Bottle. There is also an optical illusion to slow traffic down and the last one is honoring the First National Bank that has been serving the community since 1901. The weather is turning colder so the project will be picked back up in the spring. The hope is to eventually paint the entire town, literally. If you have any questions or would like to help out the art students please contact the head of the visual art department Megan Smith for more information.
