Community based sculpture
Commissioned by Highlands Elementary School
Naperville, IL.

The head of the whale is 9′ high and 6′ diameter, and the tail is 5′ tall and 3′ diameter, made of cement over a rebar and styrofoam understructure, and is painted blue. The project idea was for the whale’s body to be like the ocean that the sea creatures swim in. The 5th grade class, at Highlands Elementary, made sea creature clay tiles that were installed on the body of the whale. On the ground, surrounding the whale, is a cement slab representing water, stained a green-blue sea color with ceramic creatures also embedded.
