About: This was the first of a set of pieces done by our advanced art students. We used photos taken at Harper’s Ferry and did landscape paintings then we tied it together with a metamorphosis from shackled fists to broken chains then to free birds and open hands/ graduation hats! Each piece is visually connected to the next. There are eleven students that contributed to the project.
