Gateway Technical College Graphic Comm student Greg Kirstein collaborated with fellow graphic student Steven Samuelson and welding student  Joe Felgenhauer to produce the work “KEYCOCK,” which was exhibited at the National American Association of Community Colleges’ national Workforce Development Institute held in St. Petersburg, Fla. Jan. 29-Feb. 1.

Photos of the piece were also displayed at The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The artist’s concept was to use keys received from across the Gateway District (Racine, Kenosha, and Elkhorn) to symbolize the keys to a proud and bright future. A video helping to document the process appears on YouTube (see below) as well as a newspaper article in the Kenosha News.
