Paper City Art: Percent for Art

Since 1979, the Maine Arts Commission has administered Maine's Percent for Art Program, a program described by the Bangor Daily News as a law that "reserves 1 percent of the construction funds for all state-funded building projects to provide artwork for the public areas of these buildings."

Below are the Percent for Art projects in Westbrook schools:

Sempre Avanti, Roger L. Majorowicz (Westbrook High School, n/a)

Alpha-Bestiary, Jo Diggs (Prides Corner School, 1990)

Zhen-Zhen, Natasha Kempers-Cullen (Prides Corner School, 1990)

Shooting Stars, Natasha Kempers-Cullen (Saccarappa School, 1990)

Fish Dreams and Pisces (here, here, here, and here), Lin Lisberger (Saccarappa School, 1990)

Westbrook World, Roger L. Majorowicz (Westbrook Regional Vocational Center, 1998)

Dropping the Line (here, here, and here), Thomas Nadeau (Canal School, 2000)
