1st School in Michigan to Participate in Art for the Sky Program!

In June, Lindemann Elementary in Allen Park Public Schools was the 1st school in Michigan to participate in the Art for the Sky program.  Students at Lindemann became a living piece of art visible only from the sky, with the help of artist Daniel Dancer.  Dancer has been creating Sky Art for over 30 years, all over the United States, Canada and in countries such as Holland, Australia and India to name a few.  This opportunity was made available through a grant funded by the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs and due to the extraordinary efforts of Rachel Trapani, APPS Art Teacher.
