In 2007, The Art Factory sponsored fourth and fifth graders at Monte Sano School in designing, building, and installing the first Augusta children’s sculpture garden.
Under the direction of Atlanta artist Jeff Mather, the students used Native American Indian bird related symbols in designing their works of art reflecting the bird sanctuary designation of the park.
The entire school celebrated their achievement at a gala garden opening April 20, 2007. Choreographed dances and speeches presented by the students entertained teachers, parents, and community leaders. The Children's Sculpture Garden was featured in Southern Living Magazine.
