Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission is matching funds at our new place. The RLA Mosaic Project.
THIS PROJECT HAS NOW BEEN FULLY FUNDED!
Exciting news! We've been awarded funds by the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission (KCAIC) via the National Endowment for the Arts to create an extraordinary art installation at the new PFLC campus. And a generous donor has already awarded us the amount needed for the matching funds requirement.
Join us in celebrating the brilliance of dyslexic minds and the transformative power of art!
With the Rolph Literacy Academy Transforming Education through Mosaic Sculptures project, our dyslexic students will craft beautiful mosaic patterns out of tile and beads with local artist, Kate Pepper. These patterns will be displayed on twenty sturdy posts, varying in height from 8-12 feet, in the butterfly garden near the entrance of our new building. We will also incorporate succulents, solar spotlights, plants and flowers, and mosaic stepping stones to create a stunning, inviting area for our students and guests to appreciate the beauty of art and nature for decades to come.
This will create an atmosphere that delights and inspires our guests as they arrive for the Grand Opening in October 2023.
It will make a lasting impact on the lives of our dyslexic students, empowering them to showcase their abilities, build confidence, and foster a sense of belonging within our community.
Thank you for your continued support and belief in the power of education. We're grateful for each and every one of you!
