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!
