Why were there over 75 umbrellas set up behind the Kane Area Elementary School last week? For a 5th grade art project. Temporary environmental art to be exact.
Based on the art of Christo (he is famous for building a cloth fence over 24 miles long across California & also for surrounding islands in Florida with pink cloth) the entire 5th grade class displayed their â€śumbrella artâ€ť and had it photographed. This was done under the direction of volunteer parent, Anne Cleer, and the 5th grade teachers Mrs. Zeigler, Mrs. Grolemund, Ms. Counts, and Mr. Zimmerman.
