Community - Art and Effort

Many students had never explored Sumter's downtown area before participating in the Mosaic Garden project. Even fewer had heard the terms site-specific, topiary, and public art. The project reintroduced the students to the heart of their city and made them think about how people and places interact to create a sense of community. In this video, Heidi Adler, a high school ceramics teacher, and Lynn Eldridge, a middle school art teacher, explain how the project inspired their students and created change in the community.
