Bay Port High School Students Woodworking Featured in the Neville’s Upcoming Exhibit Life and Death at Fort Howard   
Green Bay, WI---April 4, 2016---Students from Bay Port High School are helping the Neville Public Museum staff with the upcoming exhibit Life and Death at Fort Howard
Students from Engineering & Technology teacher Mike Phillips’ class built a canoe that will be used as an interactive element in the exhibit and students from Dan Klewer’s art class are painting the finished product.  The student team from Bay Port is made up of one designer, three builders, and five artists.
Life and Death at Fort Howard celebrates the 200th anniversary of the American occupation of the military fort in Green Bay.  This shared local history is an opportunity for community partnerships and the Neville is grateful for Bay Port’s willingness to participate!
The canoe will be dropped off at the Neville at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 7.  You are invited to the museum to see the installation and to speak with the museum staff about the collaboration with Bay Port High School.
