What's Art? 2004

That was the name given by organizers at Citizen School to the apprenticeship program I was invited to do with 4 young black teens, 13, 14 yr old for 12 weeks. This was a low budget project. $125 was offered towards expenses. We zoomed past that just with food as the classes were held around dinner time and I brought pizza & crunchy home made things.

The picture here is really only half the pipe. It is 9 ft high and has two identical sections I found down the street out at the curb. The Greek at the Stone Museum gave the middle connector and the plastic globe at the top I got from our plumber.

First I took it to the school and we cleaned the pipes and painted them. We took photos of everything and the next class we began with the web site documentation of what we had done the week before.

We continued till the end when Justin Price, Churchill School, taught Power Point to the 4 other teens and  that last minute Power Point Presentation was used telling New Zealanders about the Citizen School Ball Pipe and now tells the world. What's Art History Lesson The Ball Pipe is at the Polytechnic Institute of Technology in Christchurch, New Zealand in the hands of  Henry Sunderland. (Gnomologist) (ARTCARS )

Henry Sunderland is included in Ripley's Believe it or Not" for the world's largest chalk drawing. He had help!
