Stevenson High School submission

Stevenson High School will participate in the Apples Around Town project in Lincolnshire this spring.

The public art event will feature fiberglass apple structures decorated by local artists and placed around the village.

The project is organized by the Lincolnshire Community Nursery School in honor of its 40th year of operation. Nursery school director Amy Morrissey is the parent of a Stevenson student.

The Stevenson Foundation provided a grant to cover the cost for the high school.

Fine Arts Director Jon Grice is inviting all interested students to get involved.

The fine arts division will host a competition for students to submit designs. One design will be chosen, and the apple painted on weekends in March and April.

All designs are due March 17 to Grice in the fine arts office or by email.

The large apples will be on display around Lincolnshire between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The apples will be made of fiberglass with a coating very similar to that of an automobile.

After the promotion ends, the apple created by Stevenson students will relocate to the school and a spot to be determined.
