From the beginning of our partnership with artist James Hubbell we had the idea of student photographers capturing the development of the gate. At important moments in the gate’s creation, I’ve grabbed kids at recess, lunch or after school to come snap away. When we have the official ribbon cutting in October, we will have student photography displayed to tell this extraordinary story. So here’s another layer of totally cool: student artists from our Kids with Cameras class documenting this historic moment in the garden.
Last Spring Avery took this picture of Ethan capturing the moment when I met Bill Porter for the first time. (He is a fellow artist and friend of Hubbell’s who worked on the gate.) More pictures to follow!
