The Museum School Mission Statement Project

In the past few weeks, I've been busy finding and organizing artists to participate in a community art project for The Museum School. Katherine Kelbaugh, the principal, had the idea to have artists come up with creative interpretations of The Museum School's mission statement. The vision is to have an original work of art that would hang in each classroom. There are a total of 7 classrooms at the school and the artists that have agreed to participate range in style from polymer clay artisans, photographers to mixed media artists. The deadline is October 5, just before The Museum School's first exhibition night on October 7.
I've created a series of 3 mixed media works on canvas that basically illustrate the words in a whimsical style (of course!) It's going to be really exciting to see all the artist's final pieces. I let them have free reign in that I didn't require to see sketches or see anything in progress.

One of the photographers, Sara Speert, will be documenting the progress of her piece, so check it out and see her journey!
