Students create art for town’s 250th

As part of Wiscasset’s 250th anniversary, high school students created “Wiscasset: Then and Now,” pairing older images of familiar town landmarks with current images of those locales. It is on display at the library at 21 High St.

Primary and Middle schools added another layer to that project by producing their own versions of the subject matter. Some of the art also is displayed at other locations around town.
