In October, the artwork of several students from Springer School and Center was displayed in the Friendly Cities Painting Exhibition in Liuzhou, China.
The exhibition was organized though the Sister City Association with the aim of deepening mutual understanding between children of China and other countries, and strengthening friendship between Liuzhou and other member cities. Artwork by children from Cincinnati, Muntinlupa City of the Philippines, Bandung City of Indonesia and Ami Town of Japan, was displayed in an outdoor location in Liuzhou.
Joseph Hamrick, Chairman of the Cincinnati-Liuzhou Sister City Committee, gathered and organized photographed artwork from Cincinnati and sent the photos to China. He traveled to Liuzhou to view the exhibition and take part in an opening ceremony. “People who viewed the exhibition were especially impressed with the works from Cincinnati students,” said Hamrick.
The Springer students whose artwork was chosen for the exhibit are Eden Arvay, Nic Babb, Abby Beutel, Owen Boone, Luca Centurion, Alex Dandridge, Bill Fitzpatric, Lily Harper, Max Holm, Nina Jackson, Owen Lawler, Grady Lemmerman, Journey Peterson, Casey Putnick, Savannah Tarrab, and Faye Wolfson. Their works were created in the classroom of Springer Art Teacher Corrinne Thaler.
