Dunes

We are elated to receive another addition to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Artist-in-Residence Collection. This wonderful watercolor of the Chellberg Farm area was created by James Johnson. James traveled from Grand Rapids, Michigan to paint the dunes. He spent two weeks exploring the sundry landscapes and was drawn to the lines and the light of the windmill and granary.

Youth

MBACD will be exhibiting sculptures created by Wirt-Emerson students in a week long workshop facilitated by Calumet Artist Residency, where students will create sand molds using local sand that will then be positively cast by pouring molten iron into the molds. Iron will be salvaged from scrap yards to introduce an element of recycling. This process resembles the process used in local steel mills and the workshop combines disciplines and incorporates lessons in math, science, and art.
