Art Statute in Courtyard
A new decorative feature has been added to the Nimitz Elementary School Courtyard. It stands just 4 feet high, but symbolizes something very grand, the education of the students at Nimitz. Art teacher Kari Reed, and parent volunteer Angela Swyers have teamed together to design the concept. Mrs. Swyers, a trained artist herself, designed the shapes of each section, and built the forms in which the shapes were cast. Second grade students with the help of the Nimitz Art Club applied the tile pieces to complete the mosaic.
The two ladies started the school year talking about putting an art project in the courtyard. Mrs. Reed explained, “Our first idea was a totem pole, and the concept grew from there.” Mrs. Swyers researched the concept, and settled on the idea for using concrete mosaics blocks. Mrs. Swyers went on to say, “We first thought we would do geometric shapes, but it didn’t have a whole lot of meaning. As we thought more and more about it, we came up with something more symbolic.”
The sculpture consists of 5 separate pieces. The base of the sculpture represents the earth and educating children about the world we live in. The second level represents the sea of knowledge that is made accessible to our children through school. The third level is in the shape of a boat, and is a metaphor for the vessel (school), that carries our children through this enormous sea of information. A sail sits on top of the boat, and represents the various influences that guide our children. At the top is a dolphin, our school mascot, which stands for wisdom and teamwork.
Nimitz Elementary School would like to thank Danny’s Tile Service for the donation of the tile pieces, and to the KISD Maintenance Department for their assistance in the assembly of the sculpture.
