Bluefield College displays 3-story ladder art project


BLUEFIELD, VA (WVVA) - A brand new art project has Bluefield College climbing new heights.

On College Avenue, an estimated three story art project is on display and is made entirely out of ladders.

This work is titled "Bluefield Rising Together" and is created by retired Radford University art professor Charlie Brouwer.

The towers consist of more than 100 ladders both borrowed and donated by the community.

"We've had people come by and thought of the holy trinity when they've seen it," said Professor Walter Shroyer, chair of the BC Department of Art and Design.  "It's actually about the two Bluefields and that's what the two towers are."

The project is up for three more weeks and donated ladders will go to Habitat for Humanity.
