This past December,the artwork of 31 Sculpture students was on display as part of the 42nd Annual Festival of Trees and Traditions at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. As part of the event, schools, organizations and artists created and donated trees to be put on display and sold as an important fundraiser for the museum. Each of the Sculpture students at BHS created an animal sculpture using paper and wire to hang on the tree. These animals were inspired by the work of American sculptor Alexander Calder. The tree was on display December 4th-13th.
On Friday, November 8th, Sculpture and Art History students took a walking tour of Berlin’s historic district. Local experts, Lorraine Stub and Amy Prescher, led the students down Worthington Ridge to observe the unique architecture and discuss the interesting history behind some of Berlin’s oldest buildings.
