Art Camp Students Create Artwork after visiting Steven Siegel on location
Yesterday, the subject of the Art Museum's Summer Art Camp was Steven Siegel's site-specific work, It goes under. Students were bussed to the site in West Laramie to meet the artist and experience the 170-ft long sculpture. Returning to the museum, students used similar recycled materials--window screen mesh and shredded paper--to create their own "worm-like" sculptures. They stuffed their mesh tubes with paper, using long tubes as a plunger, and then wrapped used wire to wrap and shape their creations.
