Ceramics students created a group piece in response to recent events in our community. This artwork represents an expression of hope and encouragement in times of deep tragedy. It exemplifies the strength and ability of our community to piece back together our broken spirit. This project evolved as a coping mechanism as we worked through feelings of loss and sadness. Elements within the composition were symbolic references--a shattered, but golden townscape and original poetry from published Alter Ego's of the past. (That's our art and literary magazine).
