As the Kohl’s Color Wheels Team Coordinator, I have the chance to bridge the gap between the Collection and the world outside the Museum walls. I am given the awesome task of working with area schools and art teachers to bring part of the Collection to them. I wanted to share this process through photos of a past event with Shady Lane Elementary.
The inspiration for the school art event was taken from Dale Chihuly’s amazing glass sculptures. His Isola di San Giacomo in Palude Chandelier II presides over the Museum’s Windhover Hall, and became the foundation for a collaborative project that we undertook at Shady Lane.
Inspiration + Materials + Travel + Collaboration = Instant Chihuly! Check out the photos below to see the process of this project.
