90 area 4th graders honored for their art depicting Sioux City history
90 4th graders were honored for their art and love of history this weekend at the Sioux City Public Museum.
This was part of the 27th annual Sioux City History Projects exhibition at the museum where student art projects that center around Sioux City's past and present were showcased.
One student whose art was featured said it was all about trying something new.
"Doing it with my family. Not many other people do it and I thought it'd be a first time for me to do something like this," said Perry Creek 4th Grader Gaby Saravia.
These projects not only let the students show off their creativity, but it also allowed them to take a step back in time.
"I wanted to do something that was really old that nobody else wanted to do. I'm proud of my project," said Unity Elementary 4th Grader Damarys Cardenas.
More than 1,000 students across the district created art for the display.
Some of the winning pieces included the 1891 Corn Palace, the Orpheum THeatre, the Flight 232 Memorial and the Sergeant Floyd Riverboat.
