Deaf School Gateway

Deaf School Gateway

VSAI (now ArtMix) teaching artist, Barbara Zech, was a visiting artist with ISD art teacher Scotty Zwicker’s classes for years leading up to this project. They had a vision to create something on the Monon Trail to share Deaf culture with the community. The gateway was a Deaf-Hearing community collaboration in all aspects of design / planning, building, and development.

To create this sculpture, the artist led workshops with ISD students over the course of a school year and all K-12 students
