Rapid City Children Help To Create "Will Be" Sculpture, Win Trips To L.A.

Last week a graduate art student from UCLA returned to her hometown of Rapid City to work on a sculpture with area children. Bridget Beck will now ship the parts of the sculpture back to Los Angeles, where she’ll work on it with L.A. kids. And at the end of July, seven Rapid City kids will travel to L.A. to meet California kids and see the completed project. For today’s Dakota Digest, SDPB’s Victoria Wicks goes to General Beadle Elementary School in North Rapid to watch the progress and talk with some of the children.
