Former Dundas resident Jasmine Baetz leads community art project

Community May 08, 2020 by Craig Campbell Dundas Star News

Former Dundas resident Jasmine Baetz will join the faculty of Coker University in Hartsville, South Carolina as Assistant Professor of Art in September.

Baetz completed her MFA in ceramics at the University of Colorado-Boulder, where she organized a community sculpture project: Los Seis de Boulder — a monument to six Chicanx Colorado-Boulder student activists killed by car bombs in May 1974.

Baetz was a Parkside Secondary School student, wrote the column “What’s Up, Parkside?” for the Dundas Star News and received early arts training at Dundas Valley School of Art. Baetz’s parents are Rashne, a former Dundas town councillor, and Brian, professor emeritus of engineering at McMaster University.

Hundreds of participants planned, designed and fabricated the monument, which features mosaic panels forming portraits of the six student activists.

Families and friends of the six students participated in a series of community art days to produce thousands of glazed tiles for the monument.
