Golesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, III. Wednesday, May 2, 1973 2S New Art Program Inaugurated at Monmouth School MONMOUTH - A new pm- gram in art appreciation for students in the Monmouth elementary schools was launched Tuesday at Harding School. Known as the Art Presenter Program, the project was initiated by the Monmouth branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) with the support of local organisa­ tions, businesses, and individuals. The Art Presenter Program consists of the purchase of reproductions of famous art works, ranging from traditional to modern, and including a wide scope of cultures and periods which will form a permanent art collection for the schools. THE WORKS wilt be "presented" to students at each grade level in an organized plan of monthly presentations. The presenting will be done by a corps of volunteer presenters composed of interested parents and community residents. Following endorsement of the program a year ago by Richard A. Flynn, superintendent, the AAUW conducted a finance drive in the community which pro* duced nearly $300. Based on this evidence of community support, the Illinois Arts Council, an agency of the state, awarded additional funds of $270 toward the Art Presenter project. "We are pleased that this program which will enhance the existing elementary curriculum, merited the support of the Illinois Arts Council," said Mrs. Harlow Blum, chairman of the project. She said the purpose of the project is to supplement art activities already provided by MONMOUTH Correspondent Mrs. Lorraine Stauth For News 412 S. 10th St. Phone 734-4721 For Missed Copies Before 6 P.
