Students use their talents to paint the town

Talented young artists from local middle and high schools once again took part in a half-century old tradition of creating large works of art with Halloween themes, which are then hung on downtown store’s front windows.

From last Thursday through Monday, students from Monument Mountain Regional High School, Monument Valley Middle School and Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School swarmed Great Barrington’s downtown wielding pencils and paint brushes to create art work as part of the annual window painting contest, sponsored by The Rotary Club of Great Barrington.

The tradition originated at the former Williams High School in Stockbridge. Monument High School opened in 1969 when Williams closed, according to Neel Webber, who is in his 24th year of teaching art at Monument Mountain.

The event included participation from 85 students from the high school, 30 from the high school and 15 from Rudolf Steiner School, said Webber. Throughout his tenure, Webber has seen generation after generation participate in the yearly event.
