Southern Outer Banks Inspire Students

Featured Image

This painting by a Swansboro High School student joins 60 other impressions of the Southern Outer Banks in a student art exhibit to be on display at Cape Lookout National Seashore through the summer.

Themed “Connect with the Rhythms of Nature on the Southern Outer Banks,” the art exhibition features 60 pieces created by 470 students attending 19 public and private schools.

The exhibit will open to the public at the Harkers Island Visitor Center, 131 Charles St., from Saturday, March 9, until Sept. 9.  The satellite exhibition will be in the Beaufort Visitor Information Center, 701 Front St., starting March 25, when the park information center reopens for the season.

Cape Lookout National Seashore and the nonprofit International Fiber Collaborative, or IFC,  partnered on the exhibit.

IFC, founded in 2008, works to develop and promote community programs that encourage learning and creativity in the arts to science, math, engineering, and the humanities and encourage collaboration between art and civic engagement.

Visit the Cape Lookout National Seashore website for hours and details about the park.
