A few years ago the Columbus Museum of Art invited classes to discuss
and the life and art of Elijah Pierce, a well-known Columbus folk
artist, and to look closely at his carving entitled NOAH'S ARK.

Students were asked to think about the idea of an ark as a container
that holds important things and keeps them safe and to design as "ark"
filled with objects that they think are important to save.

Classes discussed ideas and wrote a statement of intent regarding what
and why they hoped to preserve and then created their version of "ark".

The results were very diverse and presented some thoughtful solutions.
