We are all connected

July 31, 2014
by Gabrielle Seeley, Rapid City High School

Gabrielle Seeley took her show on the road to Wagner on the Yankton Indian Reservation in southeastern South Dakota this week. Mrs. Seeley, an arts and language teacher at Rapid City High School, is using the curricula she developed based on The Sculpture Project, called Passage to Schools, as a starting point for education about Oceti Sakowin culture and literature.

Working at Wagner Community School this week is an enormous privilege.  The people in this school, both students and staff, are focused on learning and working together. Each day, I am working with around 105 students in grades K-8, using Passage to Schools lessons that teach students about Oceti Sakowin culture and literature. Students of all ages have been reading texts from Ella Deloria and Luther Standing Bear as well as Lakota origin stories. We then make art that links to the lessons, allowing students to express their original thinking.

Today at lunch, I asked two sixth-grade artists to tell me what they thought about the work we are doing together this week. Read more.

Are you percolating an original art project that needs seed money to get off the ground? Apply for a Sculpture Project Arts Programming Grant.

The grants, up to $5,000, are for art projects of all kinds that connect to The Sculpture Project. Projects need a downtown Rapid City connection, special consideration is given to proposals that include partners and collaborators, and a funding match is required. The final 2014 deadline is June 1.

The application is simple (really!) and can be found here. If you have questions about whether your project fits the criteria or about how to complete the application, please don't hesitate to contact anna@destinationrapidcity.com.

Christine Stewart shared a first draft of Part One of Passage of Wind and Water: A Choral Poem.

Christine writes that this draft is, "Inspired by the work of Mrs. Garrett's sixth-graders (Southwest Middle School) as well as several of the adult participants who have sent me lines, poems, and bits of prose. I have drafted the "wind" section of the choral poem. Several parts seem to be shaping up: stars, water, wind, stone, prairie. I'm eager to collect more submissions, so please send yours as soon as possible."

A choral poem is a poem designed to be read aloud by two or more people in a group setting. This first draft is crafted for three readers. To read the poem,
