Creative Writing Seniors’ Arianna Sullivan and Chelsea Alden had the opportunity this winter to be a part of the community initiative Snow Poems project. Snow Poems is an ongoing project created by the Cut & Paste Society of Santa Fe with partnership from the Santa Fe Art Institute to involve the community with making “living books” in their own community (See About for more details). Alden and Sullivan were responsible for stenciling the selected poetry with non-toxic spray on the windows fronts of dozens of participants (businesses, government buildings, schools, and other locations around the city). While Alden and Sullivan are done with their part of the project, both plan to continue with involving the community in art projects in the future.
