Come to MCPL Wausau and see the "Pulp to Paper" artwork display from students from area schools. More than 50 students, primarily with disabilities, learned the art of papermaking and paper arts sculpture. Using the theme, "Around Our Mountain", students created artwork responding to the question, "What does Rib Mountain say to you about the environment?" Their answers are depicted by their artistic creations as well as embossed into their creations.
Participating schools in the VSA Arts of Wisconsin project include Franklin Elementary School, John Muir Middle School, Horace Mann Middle School, and D.C. Everest Senior High School.
The mission of VSA Arts of Wisconsin is to expand the capabilities, confidence and quality of life for children and adults with disabilities by providing programs in dance, drama, creative writing, music, and visual art.
