A learning environment where public art is exhibited is a place that thinks, feels, and invites discussion as it enriches students' lives.

Family Portrait Series

Trinity Prep celebrates its diverse and ever-growing family.

  • "Trinity Family" is a portrait series created by the visual arts students under the guidance of the regionally acclaimed portrait artist Don Sondag in the spring of 2013.
  • The portraits of the founders, Cannon Reese Hay and Rev. H. Benton Ellis, painted by Don Sondag, are surrounded by the student-created self-portraits. This is an ever-changing display, and it gets updated with new faces of Trinity Prep.
  • Displayed behind the front desk of the Education Center lobby.


Trinity Ecology Mosaic

Through art, students show their commitment to keeping our world green.

  • The "Trinity Ecology Mosaic" was made in 2009. Lead artist Lynn Tomlinson worked with middle and upper school students to create this large-scale piece inspired by the beauty around us.
  • The scene is the view from the island. Students researched plant and animal life to ensure accuracy. Ceramic tiles were carefully hand-made by the students. In addition, some commercial tile and mirrors were used.
  • Displayed on the side of Browkaw. Watch videos of the installation and reveal!

Taking Flight

Students learn the importance of creativity as they grow in their journey from student to graduate.

  • “Taking Flight” is a community art project created in 2010 through a collaboration of Trinity Prep students, artists John and Lynn Whipple, and the generous support of the Patrons of the Arts Danhof Series.
  • Students in grades nine through 12 created birds and totem beads to be used to create two installations on campus. “Taking Flight” symbolizes the transition from student to graduate through the nurturing direction of the wonderful faculty at Trinity Prep.
  • Displayed by the canal.

Steamroller print

Students engage in a unique print-making process.

  • “Steamroller” prints involve using an actual steamroller as a printing press, enabling the artist to make very large prints. Mrs. Moreland-Garnett's Printmaking and Art 8 classes worked together on the project.

  • Students carved a design into the four-by-eight-foot piece of wood to make the relief plate. Students inked the plate, moved it to the pavement, and carefully placed printmaking paper on top of the plate. Blankets were spread over the paper, and then a steamroller moved over the print, pressing the ink into the paper.
  • Displayed in Brokaw Hall. View our catalog of public art installations throughout campus.
