    Work of art committee featured in The Midweek Wire

    The artwork preservation committee's efforts and Crowdrise campaign were featured in an article by Matt Schickling in the April 1, 2015 issue of The Midweek Wire, Bensalem edition. The article also included photos of three artwork pieces being preserved by the committee's efforts. 
    About the committee
    The artwork preservation comittee has completed the first phase of their work.  Each work of art was photographed and cataloged.  With the completion of the renovation project, select pieces will be chosen for digital framing using a Styrene finish format; these pieces will be hung in the renovated high school. Fundraising efforts continue through the sale of Note Cards and the Crowdrise campaign.
