K to 5

Is there a limit to the number of participants:


Is there an opportunity for community service:

Yes – 2 to 4 hours

Is this a new or existing project:

This is a new project.

Estimated project cost:




Elementary classrooms are invited to create a unique art installation that will tell the story of how many students are served by our gallery tour program. Their financial donation will go toward supporting free gallery learning and their time will go toward create a piece of public art.

Working with Center staff students will learn about contemporary installation art and create a garland (designed collaboratively) representing each student served by Center gallery programs during one school year. Once completed, students will help to install the garland, create informational text and host an art opening.
