Middle school students’ art now decorates local police stations


ROCKFORD (WREX)- Artwork from Rockford Middle School Students will now hang in the walls at all three stations of Rockford Police.

The art at each station is from students that live in that police district.

It’s a collaboration between Rockford Public Schools and Rockford Police.

“I think exhibiting their work makes them feel valuable,” said Adriana Villagomez, Middle School Art Teacher at the Rockford Environmental Science Academy. “They’re very excited about it that they can come out and see it and that we value their work. I think just that alone is exciting for students.”

Student art work will be displayed at all three districts until May of 2019.
