MARLBOROUGH – Spider-Man made an appearance. So did Wonder Woman and Barack Obama.

Renderings of them were part of hundreds of 2-D and 3-D artwork at the annual kindergarten through 12th grade Citywide Art Show at Whitcomb Middle School on April 4.

Visitors trudged through an early spring snow to warm up to a variety of media, from digital and video to graphic design and ceramics.

“I’m so proud of all the students’ work,” said Marlborough Public Schools Superintendent Mary Murphy.

Both floors were filled with artwork – elementary and high school on the first floor, middle school on the top.

In the center of the lobby, several pieces had just returned from a display at Worcester Art Museum, part of a regional art exhibit celebrating Youth Art Month.

Nearby, members of the Mason family searched for their entries. Kylie Mason’s entry was near the school’s main entrance.

“It’s the best piece of artwork I’ve done this year,” said Kylie, who was there with parents Dave and Katie Mason and sister Cassidy.

At the library entrance, MPS arts staff ran several short videos produced and directed by students. Near the entrance, visitors could leave messages on Post-It Notes about the exhibit.
