MS teacher’s sculpture to display in Michigan

Posted on May 25, 2017, in Events, Lancer Life

James W. Parker Middle School art teacher Christina Martin will have her art featured in an outdoor sculpture exhibit in Michigan.

Her sculpture, “Micro”, will be on display at the fourth annual sculpture exhibition at  John D. Wittersheim Sculpture Park in Adrian, Michigan from August 14, 2017 through August 4, 2018.  The purpose of this sculpture park is to honor the craftsmanship, ideas, tools and lessons of John D. Wittersheim. The exhibit utilizes the green spaces radiating out from Studio Angelico and provides places of inspiration and reflection. 

Martin’s sculpture is steel and is approximiately 11 feet tall. Thanks to the moire pattern, which is created by the perforated sheet steel, as the sunlight and moonlight change throughout the day so does the piece.

Martin graduated from Ohio State with her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Sculpture and her Art Education certification from Edinboro University.  While at Ohio State, Martin worked mostly in metal. Now, she works with metal, ceramics, and mixed media pieces.
