LOCAL STUDENTS CREATE PUBLIC ART FOR OAKMONT-PLUM PLAZA

The PA Turnpike and PA Council on the Arts (PCA) recently took their Arts Sparks Program to the Riverview School District. Art Sparks is a partnership between the PA Turnpike and the PCA’s Arts in Education residency program to showcase student-created artwork at service plazas across the PA Turnpike.

Students at the Riverview Junior and Senior High schools — which serve the Pittsburgh suburbs of Oakmont -- designed and helped to create a colorful mosaic for the Oakmont-Plum Service Plaza. Students, the community and PA Turnpike leaders recently unveiled the completed mosaic at the plaza.

Dr. Margaret DiNinno, Riverview School District Superintendent, expressed her thanks for selecting the school district for this creative collaboration which showcases elements of Western PA.

“Our small school district takes pride in providing students with opportunities that extend beyond the walls of the classroom,” said DiNinno. “The opportunity that Art Sparks and the PA Turnpike have provided…will serve as a memorable and valuable learning experience for each of them.”
