Forage IV!

We had a wonderful event on Friday, June 7, 2013, displaying the completed and in progress murals on the grounds next to the Arts Council Santa Cruz County’s new offices at the Tannery Arts Center. The Arts Council held their ribbon cutting ceremony directly in front of the murals, which created the perfect setting for their event, and catapulted our event into a wonderful news story and a direct manifestation fo the work of the Arts Council. Here’s a photo of Michelle Williams, Arts Council Executive Director, as she spoke at the ceremony:

Students and teachers at Renaissance High School, the Watsonville Charter School for the Arts, Mission Hill Middle School, and Ocean Alternative Education Program have been studying about our marine ecosystem from diverse perspectives and working to display some of their learning on 4 ft. X 8 ft. panels.

The following Saturday, June 15, 3 pm – 7 pm there was another opportunity to see this wonderful student art, again in front of the Arts Council offices at 1070 River St., Santa Cruz, CA, this time as part of Tanniversary, the anniversary of the Tannery Arts Center.

Here’s a photo of the Mission Hill mural in progress:

Students, teachers, and artists are working to complete their art work and reflections, which were displayed as part of the Cultural Council of Santa Cruz County‘s Ribbon cutting & Open House at their new offices at 1070 River Street on the Tannery Arts Center campus. We thank the Tannery and the Arts Council for their support.
