For my first day at the Y we looked at a slide show of many past projects using a variety of recycled and found objects. To measure how much we learn, we made pictures or mind maps of all that we know about water, and talked about the goals of working as a team, having an open mind and being kind as we explore the water and our community to create something special for the museum. Special thanks to community volunteers for help at the YMCA Summer Camp: Vicki McCarroll, Patience Dorman, Joan Read, Megan Kammerich, Jessica Grathwohl, Dalton Pannell, Abby Pannell.
Holly Hughes' art features projects that are Environmental Art Happenings (E.ART.H) designed to inspire creativity and increase global compassion. She creates by recycling and reusing materials in unique ways, community collaboration, environmental awareness, edible art sculptures, easy to make labyrinths, murals, nature hearts, and more.
This blog chronicles Hughes' latest community art project, Big Fish, Big Tales, and the Big Muddy, a multi-layered community art project involving Missouri River education, stream cleanups and public art.
