A PUBLIC ART DISPLAY LAUDED BY THE CITY AND DISTRICT 1 COUNCILMAN ROBERTO TREVIÑO involved Nimitz Middle School, Lee High School and the International School of the Americas. On May 19, Nimitz played host to a special celebration and unveiling of the student artworks after the city’s Department of Arts & Culture joined CPS Energy and Trevińo for a neighborhood art project funded by the 2012 bond. After creating a wall surrounding the CPS Energy Dresden Substation at Blanco Road and Dresden Lane as a public safeguard, design studio French & Michigan installed 16 permanent metal frames and enlisted the students to devise artwork inspired by creative reuse and the theme of change, using found objects. Kim Bishop of kimbishopart.com served as the students’ artistic coach. Teachers partnering with the pupils included Eric Cavazos and Marcela Ramirez of Nimitz; Matthew Teter, Sarah Nordman and Clay Rogers of Lee; and Andrea Puentes of ISA.
