We Are Middle River

Ribbon-cutting opens the exhibit.
     On Saturday, March 24, the art exhibit, "We Are Middle River," opened at the Museum. The event marked the beginning of a year-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Glenn L. Martin Company. The artwork by fourth grade students at Orems Elementary School, under the direction of teacher Grace Hulse, captured the essence of local communities. Student drawings of futuristic aircraft are also on display.
     Author Vincent Gisriel Jr. signed copies of his book, "Hearts Away, Bombs Away," that chronicles the 1940s through the letters of his parents.
     The Museum's resident troupe, Thirst 'n' Howl, presented a one-hour musical, "Rosie," written by Debbi Wynn. The local chapter of the Rosie the Riveter was in attendance.
Students create new art work at the event.
     The students' art will be on display until May 5. Stay tuned for more events celebrating the Martin Company.
