Rain Barrel Project on Display at the Cincinnati Zoo

Rain BarrelA group of Intermediate School students worked on a project over the past couple of months creating, designing, and painting a rain barrel as part of the Rain Barrel Art Project organized by Save Local Waters.  The rain barrel is on display at the Cincinnati Zoo until April 20th.

Their rain barrel, titled "Wilderness Daydream", is a playful depiction of wildlife which celebrates biodiversity on our planet. Our inspiration comes from the wildlife artists Charley Harper, with his geometric representations of nature, and Henri Rousseau, depicting playful and densely layered scenery of jungle plants and animals.  The depictions of plants and animals are nearly entirely from the kids’ designs. This has been an amazing project to give the kids a sense of purpose in making contributions to both a local and worldwide issue.
