ELK SHED, CLIMBABLE SCULPTURE OPENING AND CELEBRATION
This gorgeous sculpture is the culmination of a 2-year partnership with Jackson Hole Public Art, Center of Wonder – Daily Wonder, Teton County School District Fab Lab student and JHCM.
Through the JHCM “Design to Climb” afterschool program, 25 3rd-5th grade students engaged in a full circle design process to build a prototype of a climbable sculpture for outdoor play at the Museum.
The afterschool students’ models were presented to the Jackson Hole High School Fabrication Lab students who selected one concept and created five fabricated prototypes.
With input from the community, Bland Hoke, Jackson Hole Public Art’s Artist in Residence, refined the design and materials and began construction.
Inspired by the natural form of an elk antler, the sculpture was delivered to Jackson Hole Children’s Museum in Fall 2018.
This sculpture represents all that JHCM strives for project-based, collaborative, relevant and engaging education! We hope you can join us for play and refreshments as we welcome this beautiful sculpture to the Museum and acknowledge our generous donors and partners who helped make this vision a reality.
