Huntington's plan approved for Legacy Project

Posted: Monday, December 21, 2015

The Indiana Bicentennial Commission held its December meeting at the Indiana State Library on Statehood Day, December 11, 2015. There were 190 Legacy Projects approved this round; 79 were submitted by the counties and 111 were submitted by the Indiana Arts Commission. One of the approved projects is in Huntington County.

Art teachers in Huntington County schools are working with 2015-2016 3rd grade students to create a clay tile mural. Each student will create their own clay tile that depicts an aspect of Indiana. The finished piece will be in the shape of Indiana. There will be at least 7 different finished pieces. The project will be revealed on September 30, 2016 at Hier’s Park during the celebration of the Torch Relay in Huntington County. The projects will be on display at Historic Forks of the Wabash, Huntington County Historical Museum and at each participating school.

If your organization would like to create a Legacy Project for the Bicentennial, please contact your local county coordinator, Steve Kimmel, at skimmel@huntington-chamber.com. Legacy Project applications are considered for approval at every meeting of the Indiana Bicentennial Commission.
