Second Project Year: 2015-2016

Bass Tennessee Cheatham

The sculpture will be constructed out of wood and wood- like materials and will measure 4 feet wide by 51” tall. On this base sculpture, found litter items will be attached in any form or fashion to beautify and colorize. They can be painted or whatever else is desired to make a beautiful piece of art. It will be important to note that these sculptures will be displayed outdoors, so it must be reasonably weather resistant. This can be accomplished by using shellac, or other items that can withstand light rain. Create a mosaic of color! Just because trash is ugly, you can transform its use into a beautiful masterpiece!

Bass structures were delivered January 10, 2018 to excited recipients with help of Clyde White, Mayor McCarver, and Dr. Cathy Beck. We look forward to their creativity! Recipients: Ashland City Elementary, PV Elementary, PV Christian School, Sycamore Academy, East and West Cheatham Elementary, Harpeth Middle and High School, Kingston Springs Elementary, Pegram Elementary, Cheatham County Library, UT Extension - 4H, Sycamore Middle and High School for a total of 15 Bass Strucutres this project period.
