Winger Celebrates Local Art Students

State Representative Christine Winger recently welcomed students from Westfield Middle School to her district office to celebrate their accomplishments in art.

Twice a year, pieces of artwork completed by the Westfield students is hand selected to hang in Rep. Winger’s Student Art Gallery in her district office.

The students are invited to Winger’s office to see their artwork in the gallery, meet their Representative, and celebrate their artistic talents with the fellow artists and their families. Each student that was honored was presented with a Certificate of Recognition from the Illinois House of Representatives.

Winger encouraged each artist to speak about their work, and say a few words about their process and final product. “Every piece of artwork chosen this time is very colorful, and adds a great touch to the office” said Winger. “It is wonderful to be able to display the talents of local students’ right here for all to see, and a pleasure to be able to meet each artist in person,” she added.

The student art gallery gives the Representative a unique opportunity to connect with young students in the community, and celebrate their creative learning.

Rep. Winger’s student art gallery incorporates a new group of student art twice a year, something the Representative looks forward to every time, to not only meet with students and hear about their creative learning but also celebrate the great talents in the community.
