About the Artwork

Our region’s International Inclusion is celebrated in this artwork. Colors representing those found in the earth and on human skin were used to paint the tires and the map of the world. The placement of the tires represents a woven fabric, a nod to the textile industry upon which this region’s economy was founded. This piece celebrates the interconnectedness and diversity of all people and our planet. The tires represent our region’s economic expansion into a global automotive industry and a physical connectedness between continents.

About the Team

I have taught 2D and 3D art for the last 12 years at E.P. Todd School. We are a unique and diverse K- 8th grade community of educators and learners who promote ROAR: Respect, Organization, Academics and Responsibility. Our Art Club, and several 7th and 8th grade art students, painted this sculpture. My students love to paint! These students worked hard and carefully made this project happen. They are enthusiastic about the artwork’s theme and the possibility of acquiring a new playground through their efforts. I am very proud of them!
