ELMER, NJ (March 12, 2014) – Inspira Medical Center Elmer will host an art exhibit featuring works by students from Pittsgrove Township School District, which will be on display in the hospital’s lobby between Sunday, March 16 and Sunday, March 30.
“March is designated as Youth Art Month by the National Art Education Association and this year we are especially excited to partner with Inspira Medical Center Elmer to display our students’ art work to the community,” said Lorraine Hill, Pittsgrove Township School District arts liaison and art teacher. “Research has shown that arts education helps facilitate learning in other subjects and enhances skills that lead to life-long learning, which is why our school district is committed to visual and performing arts education.”
The student art work featured in the exhibit will range from students in grades one through 12. Additionally, a special reception for students, their families, and the community will be held on Sunday, March 30 from 1 to 3 p.m. At the reception, students from the district’s music program will give a performance for attendees.
