GRCC helps student get ArtPrize entry off the ground

Consuelo (Cony) Poland http://www.artprize.org/consuelo-cony-poland graduated from Kendall in 2012, with a bachelors in fine arts in functional sculpture.  She then completed the welding and fabrication program in GRCC’s Job Training department in April of 2013.

While in that program her instructor and the director of GRCC’s MTEC approached Consuelo about the Tassell family sponsoring her in ArtPrize.  She agreed and started working on her piece while taking classes, and continued to use the Tassell M-TEC metal shop after completing the job training program. Her instructor Wayne Rodgers facilitated a donation of metal from Steelcase and connected her with Southwest Sandblasting and Powder Coating to finish the piece.  Consuealo began working at DeWys manufacturing in mid of May 2013 and they also supported her work and contributed to her participation financially.

Josed Estrella provided hands-on help, and the photos of her work on the ArtPrize site were taken by her friend Alicia Magnuson.
