March 2019, the Sarjeant Company, in conjunction with the MacLaren Art Center
in Barrie, commissioned a local artist Bernadette Wells to visit four local
schools, including Barrie North Collegiate, and lead workshops with visual arts
students in designing art for the Sarjeant Company's concrete drum mixers. The
theme for the designs was celebration of youth.
May 2nd, each of the designs from all the participating students was displayed
in the the MacLaren's Molson Community Gallery on an inventive "drum
roll" that showed the 360-degree designs. There were four designs
selected, one from each school, for transfer to the new fleet of cement truck
drums. Congratulations to grade 9
visual arts student Caiti Hatton whose design was selected from Barrie North!
Keep an eye out in the community for Caiti's beautiful artwork rotating around
the concrete drum of a Sarjeant Company cement truck.
