Omaha Public Schools

Liberty Elementary third- and fourth-grade students collaborated with the Omaha Children's Museum's artist-in-residence, Leslie Iwai, to create a sculpture entitled "Upside-Down Sky" that is on display in the museum's Creative Arts Center. During the project, students used scientific principles to create sculptural cloud-like formations out of recycled materials. Each student artist worked to create a "water molecule" and then worked with other students to combine them into larger sculptures. Materials used for the piece included butter tubs, craft sticks, rubber bands, string balloons and paint chip cutouts. The project was made possible through the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
