Affiliation: Reed Point High School
Team Leader: Jessica Haldenwanger
Artist(s): Emily Milligan and Katelynn Bakke
Description / Inspiration: We chose to create this artwork with high schoolers in mind. We thought about how meth can get anyone. We wanted to create a powerful image, that might resonate with teens, hopefully showing them that meth can destroy everything in its path. The art work is of a high school football player, in the outlined state of Montana, who in one hand has a syringe and everything he touches is turning black. This symbolizes how meth can destroy everything. The harsh chemicals not only destroy human life, but nature and wildlife too, which is depicted by the deer. We used acrylic paint on canvas.
Location: Front (east) side of the depot building on division street, just off of the frontage road. Directly across the street from the waterhole saloon and behind the firehouse. View on map
