Every year, the Franklin Square Gallery has an art exhibit dedicated to high school students. Unfortunately this year, they were not able to have that exhibit but they still wanted to do something for the students. They decided to ask the county art teachers to submit student artwork. They then selected 15 pieces to be printed on large panels and displayed outside the building.
Of the 15 pieces selected, 8 pieces are the works of SBHS students.
