Field Trip

December 30, 2010

Lloyd, School

Donna Willet, our art teacher at Lincoln Lutheran was taking an art class on a field trip and she needed someone else to drive. Since they don’t really let me teach many classes anymore, I drove for her.

She class was doing photography, and I’ve seen some of the pictures that they’ve taken in years past, so I know she does a good job of teaching them. They had also been talking about sculpture, so she combined the two into one field trip.

We went to UNL, which has a really lovely campus, and walked around from one sculpture to another. Donna would talk about the sculptures and they would take pictures. Donna would take them to them to the next sculpture and they would take pictures along the way. Donna would wander around looking a little lost (art teacher, remember) and they would take pictures.

We saw big sculptures:

This one was by Tony Stark.

With little, ancillary sculptures:

The kids really liked this.

This was the final sculpture we saw:

It says something, but I don't know what.

I liked it, but I thought the wall behind it was cool too:

Now that's a wall.

    Very very cool. It looks you have actual art in your part of the country. We have large stuffed or carved bears and/or moose.

    I’m surprised that squirrel is even there. Wouldn’t college kids be sorely tempted to take it?


  3. Kristi Said on:

    Is that Tony Stark of Stark Industries, Iron Man???

    That tree is amazing!! I wouldn’t mind having them line my back yard instead of the dead dormant stuff growing there now one bit!!!
