|Natural Bridge State Park Guardian Sculptures | Northern Berkshire County | 2003
Local high school students created sculptures as part of the CommUNITY (United, Neighboring, Interdependent, Trusted Youth) Arts Program which were installed at Natural Bridge State Park in North Adams. A collaboration between Northern Berkshire Community Coalition and the Department of Environmental Management, the project increased a sense of community ownership by providing the opportunity for teens to make their mark in a meaningful way.
Where are they now?
Since 2003, the UNITY youth program has offered a wide range of opportunities such as public art projects, open mic nights, concerts, song writing workshops, poetry slams, and creative writing workshops many of which are still going strong today.
