  • Watch the slideshow of many of the entries into the Washington County Public Schools Art Exhibition.

    It's the exhibit that attracts the biggest crowd to the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts every year.

    Approximately 1,500 to 2,000 people usually show up for the Washington County Public Schools Art Exhibition's opening reception, which will be from 2 to 4 p.m. today, said Christine Shives, administrative officer for the museum.

    Many of those people are probably family members of the students, but the art is well worth the trip to the museum in Hagerstown's City Park.

    The exhibit features hundreds of works, including sculptures, pottery, photographs, drawings, masks, paintings, fabric collages and at least two sarcophaguses.

    There also are a few wall panels in which the image changes as you move from the left to the right.

The exhibit is open through Sunday, May 31. Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays.
