tThe Public Art project is a community project that centers on learning for students at the Mount Anthony Union Middle School (MAUMS).

Middle school students, under the tutelage of Social Studies teacher, Matthew Rice, Bennington College professor and sculptor, Jon Isherwood and staff at both BC and MAUHS, are designing and creating a public sculpture that will be placed at The Bennington Museum. This will be the first project in creating a walking tour for residents and tourists that will educate the viewer on local history, while promoting other points of interest within the community. The project is a collaboration and involves many individuals, businesses and organizations in the community. The project theme is: “Vermont: Living in a State of Independence.” From its earliest days, Vermont has been a state that, patterned by its diverse thinkers, has proven time and time again that it is a place of independence. The word “state” doubles in meaning in this title: on the one hand, “state” references the idea of Vermont’s statehood; on the other, it refers to a way of thinking, or “state of mind.” from the beginning.
