BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

Students at Moravian College are paying tribute to the Bethlehem artist known as "Mr. Imagination."

Gregory Warmack was an outsider artist who used bottle caps and other recyclable materials in his work. He died last year, and now the students are honoring his life and work with a new exhibit.

The students included their own artwork in the display and researched Mr. Imagination as part of the project.

They said he contributed to the Lehigh Valley with more than just his artwork.

"He worked with students at Lehigh. He worked with the Banana Factory. He transformed the bathroom at Home and Planet. He just would work with children and do a lot for the community," said Kelly Weaver, Moravian student.

The Mr. Imagination exhibit will be on display at Moravian through late February.
