History through the eyes of our Children
Celebrating 400 years of history in Clinton County on Lake Champlain
Sue has been commissioned to be the Artist in Residence for a 35 foot mural
to be installed on the Government Center Building in Plattsburgh NY. The
mural tiles will be made by 900 7th graders in every school district in Clinton
County. The following photos will show the work that Sue has put into this project.
This is the first draft of the design for the mural.
This project was conceived by the Clinton County Historian and a grant was written for the project.
Sue’s name was brought up as the artist in residence for the tile mural at the Peru Central School.
Sue has taken the drawings of the seventh graders and translated them into tile molds. On the top photo you can see her working late into the night on one such project on the bottom is her method of mold making.
Here Sue is using aluminum to make her own clay cutters in the shape of people tiles.
