IRWD Showcases Student Art Work

IRWD Showcases Student Art Work

On the week of March 28-April 4, the lobby of the Irvine Ranch Water District’s Sand Canyon office will be transformed into an art gallery featuring the winning Water Awareness posters of students from all over Southern California.

The display includes the winners of the 2016 Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s poster contest. Among the work on display is the artwork of Melody Yu, who was a third grader at Turtle Rock Elementary School at the time of the contest.

Melody’s artwork and the other 35 winning posters will be displayed in the IRWD lobby and available for public viewing during regular business hours: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The students, their parents and teachers were invited to a ceremony at Metropolitan’s Los Angeles office in December. The winning art work was framed and on display in the building’s rotunda. Winning posters were published in the 2017 Water is Life calendar.

The traveling art show began in January and is making its way around various water agencies all over Southern California. The show will conclude the end of July and the framed artwork returned to the participating agencies.

IRWD has participated in the annual poster contest since its inception more than 20 years ago and has had at least one winner each year. More information about IRWD education programs is available on our website.
