Last year, a student team from our NuVuX program at All Saints' Academy won a competition for the design of a sculpture at Bonnet Springs Park in Lakeland, Florida. The park is being designed by award-winning design firm Sasaki Associates. The construction of the site is the first large scale infrastructural project aimed to reclaim abandoned sites and focus on the walkable Lakeland of tomorrow. The collaboration for the student project is a result of a partnership with Bonnet Springs Park and Platform Art and Art Research Enterprises. The student project is situated in the sensory Garden. The sculpture will play on sound and entice users with operable bangles as they pass through the garden. As part of the collaboration, the student group will visit the Art Research fabrication shop in Lancaster, PA and work on the sculpture themselves! The sculpture is now being fabricated but on hold for our students to add the final touches. The project will be installed on-site in the coming months. Congrats to the winning team!
