Petite Chateau

Mary Mitchell's avatar Mary Mitchell

A colorful, fun community art comprised of 300+ 6ft long acrylic tubes filled with small trinkets. Each of the tubes tells a story. These filled tubes will be connected and assembled into a 5ft by 8ft hut. The hut is representative of the simple schools this community builds annually in Ghana, West Africa. We have participated as a group the past 2 years. This will be our 3rd Art Prize. Approximately 1000 people will be participating in Petite Chateau. Upon the conclusion of Art Prize 2012. our tubes of trinkets will be sold. The proceeds will go toward the building of next year's village school in Ghana.
