There is a group of amazingly talented Brick Memorial High School art students who are sharing their gifts with the community and changing the face of recycling in Ocean County.
The amazing display of talent and creativity was announced by the Ocean County Commissioners on Thursday as these students turned an ordinary recycling igloo into a masterpiece.
Judy Harzer, who is the BMHS Mural and Arts Club Advisor, helped facilitate the direction of the art with blues, pinks, and purples as the prime colors with the igloo's touched with flowers, birds, butterflies, and other nature imagery.
They put the name of their school on there too.
“The talent that is on display here is just remarkable,” Ocean County Commissioner Barbara Jo Crea said in a written statement. “I want to extend the appreciation of the entire Ocean County Board of Commissioners to the students in the art club at Brick Memorial High School for not only their participation in the igloo art project but the effort they put into it resulting in this beautiful art work.”
The newly looked igloos will be located at Brick Beach No. 1 and No. 3 at the Edwin Forsythe Refuge and also at Traders Cove Marina.
Harzer and the 13 Brick Memorial High School students were given certificates of recognition from the Ocean County Board of Commissioners for their hard work.
“It is so important that we involve our young residents in the programs and services we provide here at the County,” Ocean County Commissioner Director Joe Vicari said in a written statement. “Residents and visitors will certainly be drawn to these colorful containers helping with our recycling efforts. We thank them for their participation in this art project.”
