What is your artwork about? Reuse, Replenish, Recycle, Restore, Reduce, Renew!

Society and the environment are codependent: society needs the environment’s resources, and the environment needs society to not destroy it so that it can survive. Thus, we must learn to coexist with the environment in the best manner possible.

Cancer has affected my family. We must work together for a cure.

Did your group enjoy working on this project? These two teachers have participated for two and 6 years and always report how engaged their students are about this project. There are endless approaches and ideas!

Do you have any other ideas of projects the IFC could do? Create a “Virtual Global Exhibition” of ALL projects with similar themes – cropped into hexagons which connect and would cover the globe with an interconnected network. Just takes the expertise of IT specialists!!

The globe could spin and artwork clicked would display creators and their statements and location on globe.
