Field trip to the FLAG Art Foundation

Posted on Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Clinton Middle School students took a field trip to the FLAG Art Foundation on December 20th.

First they learned from art handlers how you pack, protect, ship, and install works for a show, then they saw the installation “Fallen” by Jane Hammond, where she created a special leaf for each soldier who died in Iraq.

It was a fitting way to close the year, pondering concepts of loss, memory and hope.
