Art Saves Lives!

by The Publishers
May 18, 2019

People often ask us how we like publishing the Holliston Reporter.  We quickly reply that we love it - still.  Thursday evening we got to find another reason why we love it.  We had previously not known about or attended Art Saves Lives.  Wow!

Mr. Doug Lack greeted us warmly and showed his pride at what our young artists have accomplished.

We got to meet many talented artists and musicians - including Ally Edwards (below)  who was singing just down the corridor from her art work.

Ally proudly displayed this year's souvenir t-shirt that was designed by another HHS artist Eva Porter.

Speaking of down the corridor, every hallway we - and many other art lovers - traveled held art in different media and from different grades within the Holliston school district - from Kindergarten to High School.

Then we entered the It Takes a Village gallery.  3-D sculpture using corrogated cardboard produced by students from evey school in town.

We couldn't help stopping to listen to a Rolliing Stones classic performed by Junior Andrew MacMurray on guitar, Sophomore Nick Rider on Conga drum, teacher Mr. Doug Calais who sat in to provide some rhythm.

We will definitely have this event on our 'must do' list for 2020.  It is inspiring to us as citizens to experience the amazing talent that surrounds us every day in the form of our young people (and their adult role models).
