HANCOCK -- The Copper Country Community Arts Center is featuring artwork from area elementary, middle, and high school students March 5-31. This is an exhibit not to be missed! The Youth Gallery and the Kerredge Gallery will be filled floor to ceiling with amazing youth art. March is a time where our young artists get to shine. It’s a time not only to celebrate youth art, but to appreciate the art teachers who work throughout the school year encouraging and inspiring their students.

A special thank you to the exemplary art teachers who went above and beyond by bringing in their students’ work for Celebrate Youth Arts Month: Houghton Elementary: Melissa Hronkin; Baraga Area Schools: Bob Foster; Lake Linden Hubbell Schools: Danielle Alfafara; Calumet High School: Susan Rosemurgy; Calumet Elementary School: Debbie Mues; Barkell Elementary: Karen Scholie; and Hancock High School: Kris Raisanen Schourek.

Plan to attend the opening reception at the Arts Center from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 5.

The Copper Country Community Arts Center is located at 126 Quincy Street in Hancock. Call 482-2333 for more information.
