We had a hand in the Bicentennial

Art teachers in Huntington County schools working with 2015-2016 3rd grade students will create a mural made from clay tiles. Each student will create their own clay tile. The tile will depict something regarding Indiana. The finished piece will be in the shape of Indiana. There will be at least 7 different finished pieces. The project will be revealed on September 30, 2016 at Hier’s Park during the celebration of the Torch Relay in Huntington County. The projects will be on display at Historic Forks of the Wabash, Huntington County Historical Museum and at each participating school.
