STOLEN SCULTPURE FROM THE FRONT LAWN OF THOMAS EDISON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.
“Who would steal a sculpture from the front lawn of Edison Elementary School?
The SCULPTURE WAS A SYMBOL THAT ART CLASS IS BACK at Edison Elementary School. Let’s rise up together and show the students that they matter, by donating to make a 20 foot steel sculpture for the front lawn of Edison, that would be very difficult to steal. Our HOPE is to raise $20,000 by August 1, 2011 to make the 20 foot sculpture a reality.

Art Road Nonprofit has successfully brought art class back to the students at Edison for four years. In 2009, Carrie Fonder, Art Road Art Instructor and Fulbright Scholar created the sculpture based on Reginald’s winning sketch. Reginald along with his fifth grade classmates were instructed to sketch designs for the sculpture. Awesome photo of Reginald and Carrie along with their sculpture. Next photo - Carrie's 20' sculpture - our new sculpture will be similar to this photo.
Art Road Nonprofit is the only nonprofit in Michigan bringing art class back to schools in Detroit that lack an art curriculum. Only 40% of Detroit Public Schools have art class. Art Road Nonprofit believes every child deserves a chance to develop their creativity and is successfully bringing art classes to 400 students at Edison Elementary School in Detroit.
The mission of Art Road Nonprofit is for all children throughout Southeastern Michigan to have access to art instruction. Art Road accomplishes its mission entirely through private and corporate donations.
