Ware County Middle School students and Art Teacher Amanda Dial are proud to partner with the Okefenokee Heritage Center to promote the visual fine arts in the community. The project highlights 12 outstanding WCMS students' artwork on exhibit at the Memorial Satilla Health Hospital. The health benefits of viewing art, as well as the enhancement of an environment with aesthetic beauty, have been well-researched and documented. The artwork was installed August 31st and will remain up until mid-October. The exhibit is located in the glass cubicle of the waiting area on the first floor at the main entrance of Memorial Satilla Health. The honor of the partnership was granted to WCMS by the late Steve Bean and other high ranking OHC members due to the exemplary high quality student artwork shown during past Spring Youth Art Exhibits sponsored by the Okefenokee Heritage Center. Ware County Middle's principal is Dr. Darlene Tanner.
