This past fall, we all live here project founder Rich Alapack met with the staff at Burr Elementary and together we brainstormed a public art project for the school. While brainstorming, it was decided that our art project should help embrace the diversity at Burr. To accomplish that, we decided to create a new sign for Burr and to put "we all live here" in English and Japanese on the Ashland side of the school.
Next, Rich came to Burr and kicked off our Art Day by doing an assembly with all of our students. He taught the kids some basic graphic design and then each student drew their own ideas for a project logo.
Mrs. Beech helped the students refine their designs and further influenced Burr's values on diversity, inclusivity, and community. In total, over 700 student designs were submitted and their ideas resulted in the logo below:
Finally, we created products featuring the project logo in order to raise the funds to do the art project. These are the limited edition products that are only available to fundraise for 2 weeks starting 3/6/17 with all proceeds going towards funding the completion of this art project. Thank you to everyone for being awesome parents that have awesome kids attending an awesome school.
