Creations Throughout the Cathedral Close MIA MICHELSON-BARTLETT MARCH 28, 2016

The final days of The Value of Food: Sustaining a Green Planet are also the final days to view student artwork on the Value of Food Youth Art Walls. These two walls, located at the southwest end of the Cathedral ambulatory, have displayed a rotating selection of food-themed artwork by local students throughout the exhibition.

Through April 3rd, visitors can see The Cathedral School fourth graders’ food faces, based on the art of Guiseppe Arcimboldo. Students traced their own profiles, then filled in their features using food motifs.

On the opposite wall are spring flowers, planters, and shakers made from recycled materials by the after school students at Adults and Children in Trust (ACT). They saved recyclable materials from their daily snacks and repurposed them into a colorful wall of art that illustrates an important theme: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

More information about both of these projects is displayed on the walls alongside the artwork. Catch these beautiful creations before they expire—along with the rest of The Value of Food—on April 3rd.
