Andrew Crawford, Schenck School parent and nationally known sculptor in metal, wood, and found objects, created and gifted to the School a beautiful landscape sculpture of our mascot, the phoenix. The sculpture was installed last week and proudly stands across from the front office. Students chose the phoenix as the School's mascot in 2011, and it represents their hard work and determination to overcome obstacles.
Andrew received his BFA in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1993. He has received numerous public and private art commissions from institutions throughout the Southeast, including the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, and has participated in solo and group shows at a number of notable galleries and museums. His studio, The Andrew T. Crawford Ironworks, is located on Bowen Street in Northwest Atlanta. We are thrilled to have this incredible work of art that will be part of the campus for years to come.
