Do you remember the community art project that was on display in various business in downtown Kenosha last summer? Well, it has made its way to the state capitol art gallery in Madison. See below for some pictures:
In a photograph a young woman holds up a sign that reads, “A man robbed me and put a knife to my kid’s neck.” With her hair pulled back in a practical ponytail and chips evident in her brightly colored fingernail polish, the young woman poses purposely for the camera. But is her message a plea for help, some kind of message the viewer is supposed to act upon? Written in chalk on black construction paper, this chilling statement is a response to seemingly simple request: Describe an incident that changed you. The request, stark response, and subsequent photograph are all part of a “chalk talk” workshop conducted at the Kenosha Literacy Council.
Kenosha Unified has released the following statement (via Facebook):
Due to a water main break that has disrupted all water service to Tremper High School, students will be released early. Buses are scheduled to arrive at 12:30. All home athletics, after-school activities, and the Financial Aid Evening with the Counselors have also been cancelled. KUSD is working closely with city officials to monitor the situation. All repairs are anticipated to be finalized by this evening so that school can resume as usual in the morning. Should you have any questions, please contact the school office at (262) 359-2200.
