White Station High School Courtyard Renovation

Parents raised $225,000 to renovate a communal space at White Station High School which included several artistic pieces by local artist Elisha Gold. The project was executed by a group of parents who saw an opportunity for private funds — along with private control of projects — to help improve the spirit of public schools. That's how the project to revamp the courtyard, a previously dirty and deserted space between classroom buildings and the school's cafeteria, climbed to the top of the list.

Local artist Elisha Gold was commissioned to create name placards, decorative triangular wall art, and a working water wheel for the project. Elisha decided to galvanize the steel for many reasons, including durability and a long lasting coating. Ultimately, the appearance of the hot-dip galvanized coating provided the aesthetic he was looking for.
