Sculpture House Supports Native American Stone Sculpture
Also at Sculpture House, Mr. Barrie and Louise Deck, Operations Administrator, have been supporting and advocating for traditional Native American arts stone sculpture ever since they were contacted in 2016 by Brendon Albers of First People Fund. Mr. Albers requested sculpting stone for his high school, so he could teach the students native stone sculpture techniques, giving them ties to their past and hope for their future. The response has been overwhelming and delightful. Sculpture House has since shipped over 3,000 pounds of alabaster, soapstone and tools to the Lakota Eagle Butte High School in South Dakota, along with ceramic clay and tools to the art department at the high school to encourage the art of ceramics.
Bruner and Louise said the smiles and success of the students involved is the most gratifying feeling!
There is unprecedented enthusiasm among young art collectors today for discovering local artists. www.artworkarvhive.com
Namta recently received some photos from one of our 2019 Grant Recipients and wanted to share them with all of our members to remind all of you, at this difficult time, the importance to continue to keep the arts alive and thriving. As Peter Kelly who works in Foundation Relations at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls comments – “it’s so awesome to see moments like these when our kids are having fun and expressing themselves.” Thank you Namta members for helping to make this possible.
