Traveling Student Art Show Comes to Irvine Ranch Water District

Show Features IRWD 2012 Poster Winner

The 2013 Metropolitan Water District of Southern California Student Art Exhibit is making its way to the Irvine Ranch Water District headquarters office at 15600 Sand Canyon Avenue in Irvine and will  feature the winning art work of Ben Zolner, a Lake Forest Elementary School sixth grader.

Ben’s art work and the other 35 winning posters will be displayed in the IRWD lobby and available for public viewing April 2-9 during regular business hours:  8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

“Art work from schools all over the region was entered into the 2012 ‘Water is Life’ poster contest sponsored by Metropolitan,” said Shannon Reed, IRWD Public Affairs Manager. “Ben was one of the finalists whose art work was chosen for honors.”

The students, their parents and teachers were invited to a ceremony at Metropolitan’s Los Angeles office in December. The winning art work was framed and on display in the building’s rotunda. Winning posters were published in the 2013 Water is Life calendar.

The traveling art show began in January at the Inland Empire Utilities Agency in Riverside County and will conclude in July in Ventura County. Ben will be honored at a future IRWD board meeting and be presented with his winning art work.
