The museum was packed solid on Friday evening with people wanting to see the hundreds of exhibits, including drawings, photographs, a few sculptures and a collage, said Trigg County school officials.
The exhibit, along with the similar exhibit for students of the Trigg County Primary and Intermediate Schools in January, is an annual event that has been around for years, according to Paula Lisowsky, the museum administrator.
While there are still a large amount of pieces, there aren’t as many as there have been in years past, said Lisowsky, adding that they have had as many 500 pieces in past middle and high school exhibits.
No pieces were named best in show, or first, second or third place, unlike in the January exhibit for the primary and intermediate school students, according to school officials.
The Aqueous Show – the Kentucky Watercolor Society’s traveling component of their annual competition – in March, and the Festival of Trees exhibit in December are the museum’s other two annual exhibits, Lisowsky said.
The Primary/Intermediate School exhibit, as well as the Middle/High School exhibit, give the museum more visitors, which helps increase the number of visitors for the museum’s other exhibits, Tim McGinnis, superintendent of the Trigg County School System, said.
