Welding Students Collaborate on Community Art Project
Baker Iron & Metal, Expressive and Wellness Programs of Employment Solutions, and the BCTC Leestown Campus welding department, with instructor Shawn Gannon, have come together for a collaborative community art installation project.
Baker Iron & Metal graciously donated thousands of pounds of metal, selected by Expressive Program artists, which was then transported to the BCTC welding department where students have created 16 unique artistic panels as a semester long project.
The panels will line the accessibility garden ramp/sidewalk leading to the Art Gardens at Employment Solutions. The panels are being exhibited across BCTC's campuses for two weeks prior to their permanent installation as the garden wall.
