April is Arts Month, and in Westerville, artwork created by students at the elementary and secondary levels will be on public display April 27.

Elementary art teachers and the Westerville Arts Council, Inc. will sponsor a reception from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at the Westerville Community Center, 350 N. Cleveland Ave.

Superintendent John Kellogg will be the guest speaker and the Emerson Taiko drummers, led by Mary Rebekah Fortman, will perform. The art exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

Later that same day, from 3 to 4 p.m., secondary schools will celebrate Arts Month with a display at the Westerville Public Library, 126 S. State St. The show will highlight the accomplishments of selected students in grades six through 12. Light refreshments will be served.
