“Mel’s Friend” Moves to Canfield Middle School Library

Rhea Giffin visits Canfield Middle School

Canfield Middle School in Coeur d’Alene was given the Opal Brooten Purchase Award at the 43rd Annual Art on the Green Festival held on the grounds of North Idaho College.  The school’s selection committee enthusiastically chose “Mel’s Friend,” a mixed-media papier mache cairn sculpture by Rhea Giffin.  The sculpture is an homage to Mel McCuddin’s painting titled “Marker.” Go to the Art Spirit Gallery in Coeur d’Alene or view link: http://theartspiritgallery.com/html/artistresults.asp?artist=4&testing=true&offset=42.  Giffin waived the amount of purchase that extended beyond the award given by Citizens’ Council for the Arts so that the school could receive the sculpture.

To show their gratitude, art teacher, Mrs. Wing invited Ms. Giffin to give an informal demonstration to Canfield’s 3-d art class students who are working on their own papier mache projects.  Spokesman-Review photographer Kathy Plonka also attended.
