Central College Art Students Restore Klokkenspel Mannequins

When Central College students from the Class of 2025 Amelia Brown, Fynn Wadsworth and Emily Wassink received an email inviting students to restore historic figures from Pella’s Klokkenspel, they knew they wanted to be involved. These first-year art students have been working to clean, repaint and restore four of the eight mannequins to be refreshed for Tulip Time, with assistance from Mat Kelly, associate professor of art; Brian Roberts, professor of art and a 1992 Central graduate; and Susan Swanson, associate professor of art.
