The class accepted the challenge and the finished product which was on display this weekend at State Art Symposium. "About 20 students worked as a group on this project. It took them about two months," Gilman explained. "I'm very proud of them." Gilman added the mount will be on display and open for the public to see at the *All District Festival on Tuesday night (April 26) from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. * WATCH the Bear Group describe their experience and the process of creating the mount HERE : *Feature photo: Powell Art Students at State Art Symposium in Casper. h/t Jim Gilman / Pitchengine Communities* #reboot #news #whatshappening
