Senator Killion Recognizes Chester Upland Students for Art Work

Senator Tom Killion (R- 9) recognized a number of young students of Chester Upland School District for their art work at a gallery open house held Friday, October 14 in the City of Chester.

There were 100 art projects on display in the Art on Avenue of the States gallery, including a wide-array of two-dimensional multi-media projects from each of the three elementary schools representing the Chester Upland School District.

As a form of educational outreach, Sen. Killion hosted this special event in partnership with the Art on Avenue of the States in the City of Chester.

Art on Avenue of the States’ home art gallery is located at 504 Avenue of the States in Chester, PA. In addition to open group shows held each month; they also have a “Back Avenue Gallery” space available to interested artists desiring a solo show space; and an alternative gallery space at Harrah’s Philadelphia in Chester, PA.

“I am pleased that Senator Killion reached out to our organization to help represent our young community with the Pennsylvania Art Program.  We look forward to working with him on future opportunities like this,” said Linda Braceland, President of the Art on Avenue of the States.

Senator Killion invited the students to learn more about history, industry and government in Pennsylvania by submitting an art project.

“This allows them the opportunity to explore what they already know and love about our state,” Killion said.  “It was really great to see all the different projects, and all the hard work the kids put into it.”

Senator Killion is setting up a trip for the students to visit Harrisburg in the near future.
