Twenty-five third- and fifth-graders from Eastern Elementary School participated in a Black History Month art project in conjunction with the Contemporary School for the Arts & Gallery Inc. after-school outreach artwork program.
The students designed a quilt showing how Harriet Tubman led slaves to freedom. Art instructor Diane Hamilton was assisted by Ghafar Jame, Art Page, Gordon and Janet Bartels, Ron Lytle, Sandra Barry and Ken Wagner.
The students' presentation will be on display today from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Hagerstown YMCA.
It also will be shown at the Contemporary Art Gallery, 4 W. Franklin St. in Hagerstown, through Feb. 14. Hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
From Feb. 15 to 28, the work will be on display at Washington County Free Library.
