How can we involve kids in the art of their community that has a tie to
the environment. The current issue in Tucson that is causing a lot of
controversy is school overcrowding. The school distric has picked a
site to build a new school; however, they are running across problems
because it is natural habitat of the endangered pigmy owl. Lynne Hull
has done many sculpture installations for wildlife habitat enhancement
to express concerns for endangered life cycles. How do you think we can
involve children with respect to art in this situation? Maybe would
could talk to various scientists to see if the land for the new school
is indeed a natural habitat for the pigmy owls and involve the children
in some kind of art project to make the community aware and help take
part in either relocating the owls or finding a new site. Any thoughts
as to art projects for this situation?
