LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Today’s (Thursday, April 30, 2009) the day of the great unveiling.

Philadelphia artist Ben Volta, who currently serves as artist-in-residence at Ringing Rocks Elementary School, 1401 Kauffman Rd., during its annual art show today will reveal a mural created in part by the school’s fifth-grade students. The unveiling takes place at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria.

Fifth-grade classes collaborated on a theme based on Ringing Rocks Park and the visualization of common sounds, according to Pottsgrove School District spokesperson Beth Tripani. Volta scanned all the students’ work into a computer, and produced a unified piece approximately 3-feet high by 9-feet long.

Volta’s work at Ringing is supported by the Pennsylvania Artist-in-Residence Program.
