This project which was a funded 4Cs project in the spring of 2012. The 4Cs is committed to the concept that time spent creating together fosters lasting connections between the children and the community members. I collaborated with three other local artists: Heather Wilkinson, Jyelle Vogel (the artists who proposed the project) and William Robinson, together we worked to continue the revitalization of the St. Joseph A McKay elementary school ground as a vibrant community space culminating in outdoor community art projects. The project was facilitated by the Ecology Action Center and its volunteers, who helped us create unusual characters surrounding trashcans to encourage their use, and also a “Spirit Wheel” powered by children’s exuberance!
