Spruill Arts Staff & Instructors created a ‘ScareCROW’ for the Atlanta Botanical Gardens’ annual “Scarecrows in the Garden” program. We found out last week that our entry, “Revenge”, won 1st place in the Professional Category!
The crow was created with expertise from the Art Center, complete with a copper beak; a lightweight frame wrapped in landscaping fabric, supported with welded legs and sealed with a shiny finish. The “Revenge” is complete with a scarecrow’s arm in his beak and other parts scattered beneath the 6.5 feet tall bird. The installation runs through October 30th at the Botanical Gardens in Midtown, coinciding with the end of the “Chihuly in the Gardens” exhibit.
Creation of the Crow, nicknamed “Mittens” was led by Education Director, Kristin Wilder. Instructors Tom Beard, Joanne Hernandez and Kelly Thames volunteered their expertise along with CEO Bob Kinsey, Registrar Tricia Lobaugh and Gallery Director Jennifer Price.
Be sure to visit the Botanical Gardens before the 30th!
