The Minnesota State Arts Board awarded Intermediate District 287 an Arts Learning Grant for the 2013-14 School year. Artist in residence, Anne Krocak, worked with students from Edgewood, South Education Center, Epsilon and Omegon on public art projects using mosaics.
This activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
The arts program also collaborated with VSA Minnesota which is an affiliate of the National VSA organization started by the Kennedy family in the 1970s. This is the third year Krocak has worked with students to create a mosaic public art.
Watch the video to see students at Edgewood to create mosaics stepping stones in their community garden and talking about their inspiration for the mosaic hall tree.
