Angelica Pozo "Artist in Residence" at Hudson Middle School.
Thanks to the Hudson City Schools Foundation (HCSF) and in conjunction with Nichole Rice's Middle School Sculpture Classes, the new grounds of the Hudson Middle School will be art-rich with tile sculptures in 2020.
With the help of HCSF funding, the ArtsNow organization, and Nichole's sculpture curriculum, "Artist in Residence" Angelica Pozo will work with our Hudson students to create the tiles for public art pieces to be placed near the new Middle School. The pieces will be completed ahead of the building schedule and will be displayed inside the Middle School until the grounds are ready.
