Veridian unveils student art in branches across Iowa for ArtShare 2018

Veridian is partnering with 10 Iowa high schools to host public exhibits of student-created art in five branches across the state. Each schools’ art department leaders submitted pieces ranging from oil on canvas to graphic design, jewelry, pottery and more. As many as 150 pieces have been professionally framed or encased for display at Veridian branches in Ankeny, Cedar Rapids, Coralville, Waterloo and Waverly for one year.

Veridian launched ArtShare in 2002 to recognize and celebrate the talent of local student artists. “ArtShare benefits everyone,” said Jennifer Roberts, Veridian’s public relations strategist who oversees the program. “The art makes our branches more inviting while helping the artists find a broader audience. It also gives us all a greater appreciation for local talent.”

Veridian will host a series of ArtShare Premiere events to unveil each collection. The events are free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.
