Niagara Gazette — Other high school art classes can be involved in the project too, Michelle Blackley, interim director of marketing/communications manager for Niagara USA said. Blackley is also on the committee for “Barrel Through Niagara.”
“Schools that are interested in being involved are invited if they reach out to us,” she said. “It’s going to be a really great project.”
While the project is still in its organizational phase, Deming says they hope to have barrels distributed to artists by January 2015, with finished products being due by May 2015.
The application process will probably happen in fall 2014, Deming said.
“We’re looking for professional artists to work on these as well,” Deming said. “It will be a great opportunity for high school art students to have their work displayed, especially if big name artists also come on board.”Contact reporter Kaley Lynch at 439-9222 ext. 6245 or tweet to @Lynchie17
