Customers at a new café in south Forsyth will be able to enjoy high school students’ art while they sit down for a coffee and sandwich.
South Forsyth High School students were recognized on May 15 for their artwork being chosen to be on display in the new Atlanta Bread Company location in The Collection at Forsyth, the outdoor dining and shopping mall on Peachtree Parkway.
Art students were involved to participate in a contest based on the theme “What Does Community Mean to Me?”
Work was judged: by Dean and Kelly Ditmar, franchise owners; Basil Couvaras, co-founder, vice president and chief operations officer of the chain; members of the South administration; and the visial arts teachers at South.
Selected artwork will be on display for about one year, with plans to hold a contest annually, said Judy Hollandsworth, British literature teacher and media relations for South.
Ditmar presented each student with a certificate and gift cars.
