The two-dimensional art pieces include works of graphite, oil pastel, colored pencil, pen and ink, tempera paint and mixed media.

Students, family members and teachers participated in a reception Wednesday night at the Libertyville library to officially kick off the show.

"I really enjoy the collaborative efforts of the district and community that help display the talented efforts of our District 70 students," Highland Middle School art teacher and show coordinator Megan Russell said. "Cook Park Library is wonderful to work with and a beautiful space to display artwork. I get the most joy seeing the excitement on each student's face as they show off their work that is on display."

Russell added the show was expanded this year to include the district's musical groups. The Highland Middle School's Strolling Strings and Highland Highlights Choir performed throughout the night at the reception.

Grade school art teachers Cindi Sartain and Alicia Sather contributed to the success of the show.
