Douglas High School displays pictures from National Endowment of Humanities

The library at Douglas High School has some new pictures on display, thanks to a grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities.

"We received 40 durable reproductions of American art," said Douglas High Librarian James Polka.

He said the art enhances the creative atmosphere of the school and encourages students to look at things in a new way.

"There's a variety of different pictures," he said. "We have one by Dorothea Lange of a migrant mother. We have a picture of one of Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpieces."

Polka said the pictures will remain in the library for the next few weeks and then teachers will have the chance to check them out and hang them in their classrooms to inspire students.
