The students are placing the finishing touches on their projects in preparation for the FMHS Academic Showcase this Thursday, April 21.  The Art 1 and Middle School students’ memory boxes will be displayed in the art room from 4-7 p.m.

The sculpture will obviously be on view due to it’s public nature, however we will have a dedication ceremony at 6 p.m.  There will be a few speakers, including Melanie and I who will explain the grant and the steps we worked through with the students.  We will also highlight the ideas behind the students’ design.  There will be a display inside the school that will include some of the steps they took as well as some aerial views of Silent Witness: A Sculpture Garden.

After the dedication ceremony,the artist, students, and I will be available for questions.  We will also, at that time, request the community to interact with the sculpture on a more personal level.

I look forward to seeing you soon.
