Olathe high school students to design artwork on snow plows

Snow Plows Get Added Artwork
November 29, 2010

When winter snowstorms hit, Olathe snow plows are often a welcome sight working 24/7 to clear over 1,200 lane miles of snow. That site became a bit cheerier recently as art students from Olathe Northwest and Olathe South High Schools, added artwork to two of the plows’ blades. With a theme of “patriotism”, the plows also have a strong flavor from the respective high schools, and residents living near the schools can expect to see the artwork on display when clearing snow.

In the coming weeks, students from Olathe North and Olathe East will be painting plows showing their school spirit as well.

Media note: Times and location for future painting will be provided when scheduling is finalized. Photographs of the completed plows are available upon request.
