The goal of my artwork is to display it somewhere to show our sister city relationship between Gainesville and Santa Marta
The inspiration of my artwork is a bracelet making board that they use in Santa Marta for making bracelets
I want people to recognize the fact that we have a relationship with Santa Marta
it is a usable swing meaning it has to be somewhat tall
i will use metal as nails and wood
the shape is a swing but also a bracelet maker design
My primary location for my project is in the front circle of pk. The surrounding enhance it because it is in pk and represents pk. another location could be the front of the Kade museum
Letter to the Mayor
Dr. Lynda Hayes
My name is Gage Riley. I am in 8th grand and im one of your students at P.K. Yonge
The goal of my artwork is to create a visual representation of our sister City/school bond with Santa Marta.
My artwork is is going to be made out of Metal poles, chain and a seat ,Wood 2x4s and will be in blue and white colors which happen to be P.K.ś school colors but also Santa Marta’s school colors as well. The artwork will represent a usable swing , being blue and being white. It will also represent a braclet making board that they use often in Santa Marta.
The location of the artwork will be in the front circle of the elementary building in that grass field. Other locations can be the bottom circle near the gym.
This will tell people that visit P.K. Yonge that our school is diverse and a great partner with other schools that might visit. It will affect us by reminding us when we see it that we have a great sister school partnership with Santa Marta. If people visit from other countries come and see the artwork , They will see it and want to be partners with P.K. Yonge because they see that we have been successful in the past with similar scenarios.
Sincerely, Gage Riley
