EXAMPLES of RECENT GRANTS.
In 2011 Jennifer Davis, art teacher at the Benjamin Logan Middle School received a $1,500 grant for a significant recycled art project. Involving nearly every student in the school, a consulting artist helped the students create an eight foot high by 12 foot long mural composed of 10,000 bottle caps. The mural is on permanent display in the school’s common area. (see our blog post on the mural that includes a photo)
