Check this out guys!

SAMA coordinated with The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts for this new installation as part of the Art Sparks Project which is displayed at the New Stanton Service Plaza along the PA Turnpike! SAMA is a regional Arts in Education Partner for The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.

"This project was created by students in art teacher Emily Daignault's class at Hempfield Area High School in Westmoreland County. Students worked with teaching artist Susan Novak to create six hand painted and dyed silk art pieces, each one a beautiful depiction of recognizable landmarks, artwork and wildlife of the region.

Art Sparks is a partnership between the PA Council on the Arts and the PA Turnpike to bring student-created artwork to service plazas along the roadway's 550+ mile system. Visit https://www.arts.pa.gov/Pages/Art-Sparks.aspx
