This work, by Carla Real, Melanie Mitera, and talented students from Beadle Middle School, has been on display at numerous locations in our community and is now making its way to Lauritzen Gardens for the month of August.

Approximately 50 students from Beadle Middle School picked up trash at Pipal Park (near 78th and West Center Road) alongside Mick Manley, who finds creative ways to get others involved in community service through his local nonprofit, We Can Make A Difference. The trash was sanitized and combined with broken and recycled items to create a relief sculpture of Frida Kahlo based on one of her paintings, titled «Self Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird.» Students learned about Kahlo and about using alternate materials to create art.

Echoing the messages displayed during the garden's spring exhibit «Metamorphosis: From Reclaimed Plastics to Works of Art,» this work of art draws awareness to the importance of environmental stewardship and plastic pollution, but also showcases how beautiful reclaimed materials can be.

The project was also recently featured in the Omaha World-Herald: https://omaha.com/eedition/sunrise/articles/millard-students-clean-up-park-create-piece-of-art/article_eb76cb7f-b923-51ab-9914-e12829d356fb.html

On August 3, 9, 22, and 29, join the garden's education department to participate in a free, make-and-take art project using a variety of reclaimed materials.
