On September 11, 2013, a historic flood devastated the town of Lyons forcing the evacuation and relocation of many residents. The Lyons Elementary students, teachers and staff temporarily moved to Main Street School in Longmont to begin their school year.
The One Million Faces team welcomed the Lyons Elementary community home on December 2, 2013 photographing over 350 students, teachers and staff. For the “Time to Shine” project, students shared their unique message to the world on white boards, giving the littlest voices the opportunity to share their message with the world.
Then on January 27, 2014 Dyer began a three-week artist-in-residence program at Lyons Elementary teaching art and collage-making in the classroom. Each child created two original seven-inch collages on wood, one for the school mural and one to take home. Parents, and community members rallied to prep materials and work alongside the kids messages to create inspiring original art collages.
Join us for the unveiling of this inspiring mural at a community celebration, bring your dancing shoes!
