Line Mountain High School
Fourteen Line Mountain High School art students worked together to create (6) two foot square acrylic paintings on canvas that were entered into an exhibit at the Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton, PA. The show themed “From Coal to Steam” runs until January 15th, 2017. Afterwards, the exhibit is intended to travel nationally before joining several thousand other paintings on canvas which will be sewn together to create a drapery for a replica of the Mars Rocket. Congratulations to all of our students who participated in this unique exhibit of art.
The students who worked on this theme envisioned the pioneer spirit of the “steam locomotive” becoming renewed in the latest quest for human travel to and the “Exploration of Mars”. Just as the turn of the 20th Century saw the explosion of transportation and moving of natural resources through rail, Mars may someday provide resources beyond earth and help us to find solutions to the ever growing strain on earth to meet and sustain our future energy needs.
