Kids’ “Images of Arlington” artwork on display at the State House

A group of young Arlington artists were honored last week at the Massachusetts State House, where their award-winning “Images of Arlington” artwork is on display in the offices of Senator Ken Donnelly.

The students, all rising Arlington 6th graders, were treated to a reception in Senator Donnelly’s office, and a personalized tour of the State House by Senator Donnelly and Arlington Rep. Sean Garballey.

We learned that when Rep. Garballey was a high school student, he worked as a State House tour guide, but even he couldn’t find the Arlington town flag in the hall of flags!

At the Reception, Senator Donnelly presented an official Senate Citation to the Arlington Center for the Arts in recognition of ACA’s promotion of arts and culture in Arlington.
