forthe second year in a row have had extremely successful projects...last
year we used color and imagery/symbolism in writing and combiining with a
fused glass mural/quilt which has been permanently installed at the County
Courthouse in Syracuse, NY. and in 2 weeks we will be using our "peoplekins"
(landmarks and public art...we did landmarks in our lives through writing and
developing the student reactions of landmarks/public art and their reactions
to 911(nota bene: this project of landmarks/public art was already planned
in the June of 2001 forthe fall school year....we are having our opening at
Syracuse University with the help of the Dean..to display the peoplekins and
performanace art will also be a portion of this........if interested in more

....part of her study is "the new lteracy'..which she and others define as
the visual arts....we also use tons of technology.
