Stronger Together: glass art residency!

Glass Artist Lisa Wilcke has started a school-wide residency at Lincoln Park.  You may recognize her work if you have had a first grader at Lincoln Park who has made a glass necklace or come home full of facts about trees.  Through grants from the East Portland Action Plan and the Lincoln Park booster club, we are now able to bring her work to every student!

 

You can follow along with the process – a glass art mural for our hallway – here.  The mural, titled Stronger Together depicts the Cascade foothills leading up to Mt. Hood. The trees in the foothills will be in a rainbow of colors as a metaphor for how cultural diversity adds to the strength and beauty of a community.

 

Many thanks to Lisa Wilcke, our Booster Club and the East Portland Action Plan!
