About the Artwork

Through research our students have found that there are many international companies who own and operate businesses in the Upstate. These companies bring with them diverse job opportunities and add to our diverse culture. Through our artwork, we wanted to symbolize the upstate and include the international businesses found throughout the region. This project has been a great learning experience for our students. Due to the fact that we live in such a rural community with very little diversity, the students gained incredible knowledge of the interconnected world we live in today.
