Snowflakes of Grand for Maggie
This art installation was created by Jaime Pfieffer-Maisuria in conjunction with Grand Prairie Elementary School (Frankfort School District 157-C), the Village of Frankfort, and the Frankfort Arts Association. Students at Grand Prairie were each given a paper bag to decorate and Jaime turned the bags into the whimsical snowflakes on display. This installation was dedicated to local child Maggie with hope that it brought joy to her and her family during the holiday season.
Fly Together was an art collaboration with the Village of Frankfort, The Frankfort Arts Association, Frankfort School District 157C, and Friends of the Library. FAA board member, Jaime Maisuria, envisioned this project using repurposed pages from books donated by the Friends of the Library. With the help and generosity of the teachers at Chelsea Intermediate School, 3rd-5th-grade students created origami butterflies which were displayed at the Frankfort Village Hall. The installation highlighted the Illinois Monarch Project, which collaborates with public and private partners, to protect and enhance existing habitats, and establishes new habitats that support monarch butterflies and other pollinators.
