Art at Midd-West

Yesterday, I visited Midd-West High School to talk about raising money to bring in an artist in residence.

Budget cuts have cut funding for the program.

They’ve had an artist-in-residence come to the school during the past two years, and created some cool projects – like these low-relief sculptures which hang in the school’s lobby:

They’re made from several different materials, including old books. Very neat.

On the way back from the interview, we were thinking about other art projects that could be in schools that wouldn’t cost too much. Statutes are expensive, but maybe one that the students create using recycled materials?

What do you think? How would you decorate a school?
