Blackbird Arts collaborated with artist Marcia Borell and writer Cari Noga to create a bench with Ms. Laird's classroom at East Middle School. The students helped develop the ideas for the bench, created the artwork and chose the quote for the bench. Cari Noga visited the students to talk about writing her books and the importance of place.
This bench was generously sponsored by The Aline Underhill Orten Foundation and facilitated by Artists Creating Together.
