Marion, Iowa City West High School Student Art Exhibited at Veridian Facilities
A new student art class from Marion and Iowa City West High Schools is now on display at select Veridian Credit Union branches. Marion’s student work is at the Veridian branch at 5805 Rockwell Dr. NE in Cedar Rapids, and West High School’s student work is at the Veridian branch at 704 Second St., Coralville.
The collection is made possible by ArtShare, a partnership between the credit union and 10 Iowa high schools to publicly display approximately 140 student artwork each year at five Veridian branches across the state. ArtShare collections are on display at select Veridian branches in Ankeny, Cedar Rapids, Coralville, Waterloo, and Waverly. Each piece is professionally framed or cased for display at a local branch for one year. A virtual tour of the five collections and the list of participating students are also available at veridiancu.org/artshare.
“For more than 20 years, ArtShare has been a rewarding and connecting experience,” said Ashtin Hotek, Veridian public relations strategist who helps coordinate ArtShare. “We are grateful to the teachers and students who allow us to borrow these pieces to decorate our branches. We hope that these presentations and virtual galleries will broaden each student’s audience beyond our walls.
This piece by Marion High School student Noelle Regennitter is one of 34 Marion High School student artwork currently on display at the Veridian Credit Union branch at 5805 Rockwell Dr. NE in Cedar Rapids. The collection is part of Veridian’s annual statewide ArtShare program that partners with 10 Iowa high schools to exhibit 140 pieces of student art at five Veridian branches across the state for one year.
