Art Inspires Student Advocacy

A beautiful sculpture in disrepair has a new team of unlikely supporters to champion its cause: two first year students at Governors State.

Students Marie Schelfo and Nathan Couwenhoben launched “Home is Where the Art Is”, a GoFundMe campaign supporting the restoration and relocation of artwork by French artist Henri Etienne-Martin. Film student Peter Cummings helped the pair produce a short video featuring Lanleff-Demure No. 4 Lanleff-Demure No. 4, the bronze sculpture donated to the Nathan Manilow Park on the campus of Governors State by the Art Institute in 2003. So far, Marie and Nathan have raised $625. And counting.
