CONTACT: Michelle Silveira
LOWELL – In the continuation of an innovative partnership that kicked off last year, Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union on March 7 held a reception for the Wang Middle School students whose artwork is currently on display at our Lowell branch on Merrimack Street.
“This is a wonderful way to support local students and help them showcase their amazing work,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “The art has sparked many positive comments from our members and visitors who are highly impressed by the talent of these children.”
The project was spearheaded by Wang Middle School art teacher Marta Magnus and immediately embraced by Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. The latest display was installed in February.
The colorful paintings and drawings are eliciting enthusiastic comments from credit union members, visitors and employees. The artwork brightens the branch and highlights the talents of local students.
The artwork rotates every couple of months to allow as many students as possible to participate. Students excitedly chatted with Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union President and Chief Executive Officer Mark S. Cochran about the inspiration for their artwork and were given signed certificates of achievement.
Area residents are encouraged to stop by our Merrimack Street branch to view the students’ inspiring artwork.
