Marlette student art on display in Capitol office

Sen. Mike Green announced that an impressive art collection from the Marlette Elementary School students of fine arts teacher Sarah Opperman is now on display in his Capitol office.

The collection is based on a lighthouse and lakeshore theme that is particularly appropriate to Michigan considering it has more lighthouses and freshwater shoreline than any other state in the nation. The art will be on display for legislators, constituents and other state leaders during the month of May.

Sen. Green, R-Mayville, invites individuals to visit his office and view the art during regular business hours. Green regularly displays student art as part of his “Kids of the 31st!” program that highlights the talent and positive behavior of youth in the district.

Any school or teacher in the 31st Senate District interested in submitting student art for display may contact Green’s office toll free at (886) 305-2131 or by visiting his website at
