The exhibit is one of the most popular and brings in students, siblings, parents, grandparents and anybody else one might imagine. The show existed before the museum opened in 1998, but has been a museum tradition for several years. Eileen Kehrwald, secretary to the superintendent, said that this year’s show would feature more than 600 student-created pieces. She said it might be the biggest yet.
“The kids like it and the community sure loves to come and see it,” Kehrwald said.
Museum board member Paul Fourshee said the exhibit helps the museum fulfill one of its prime objectives.
“When the museum was started, we had the objective of, ‘Let’s try to get every elementary child in here once a year.’” Fourshee said. “Now a lot of them are in here twice a year or more.”
