Students' hard work on display at South Bend Museum of Art

South Bend, Ind. All summer long, South Bend Museum of Art Youth Clay Students worked hard creating totems. It’s all part of a unique Garden Totem Project that is now on display at the museum. A celebration for these 7–12 year olds will take place Friday, but NewsCenter 16 was able to get a sneak peek.

If you want to take a look before the ceremony, the totems can be seen as you drive down St. Joseph Street and while you are in the Carmichael Gallery.

This project was directed by Kathy Fodness, a long-time SBMA ceramic student turned instructor.

During class each group of students spent time carving their own ceramic cylinder as part of the whole totem. You can see that each totem has a different theme that these groups decided on.

This Friday these students will be celebrated. The SBMA is hosting a ceremony and ribbon cutting. The ceremony is from 6-7 p.m. and anyone and everyone is welcome.
