GALLATIN, TN (WSMV) -

Artists for years have tried to copy the style of French painter Claude Monet.

Now students in Gallatin are happy just recycling his work, in a way.

A Gallatin recycling bin is getting a make-over Monet-style.

Art students from Volunteer State Community College are helping Gallatin High School students paint the famed “Water Lilies” as part of the city’s beautification effort.

The hope is to do more classic paintings down the road and make Gallatin the most livable city in the region.

“We’re probably going to do more works, and earlier works like the Mona Lisa and Starry Night, more recognizable works for the city of Gallatin,” said art teacher Catherine Stewart.

The recycling bin should be completed by the end of May. It will then be returned to the recycling center at 641 Long Hollow Pike, Gallatin.
