"Growing in Knowing" documents the experiential learning between scrap metal artist Erika Koivunen and students from Madison's Midvale Elementary School. Together they create a garden gate from recycled materials for the Midvale Community Garden. Events shown in the film include the students learning about metal, a visit to the artist's actual studio, scrap metal collection, gardening, and the unveiling of the gate on June 9, 2009.
This film was made possible by a grant from Dane County's Cultural Affairs Commission. The first public premiere of "Growing in Knowing" was in the 2010 Wisconsin Film Festival.
Original score by Jon Taubman.
