High school art students from Greene County Community School District (GCSD) and Des Moines Public Schools Central Campus (DMPSCC) were invited to the Landus Des Moines Connector to participate in a collaborative project in the Innovation Center, in downtown Des Moines. Mrs. Sarah Stott collaborated virtually with the graphic design instructor from DMPS and their classes over a three-week period to create the design concept and determine how the two schools would combine to finish the project. As the designs progressed, the schools held checkpoint meetings with the Landus team to ensure the design would deliver on the theme “Bridging the Gap.” Over 25 students dedicated their Friday before Spring Break to chalk their designs onto the blackboard to be seen by Innovation Connector Event attendees over the next few weeks. The designs showcased new technologies in agriculture and how the urban and rural sides to Ag and farming relate. What an amazing chalk mural to be drawn in under 5 hours! Great work, Greene County Art students!
