Sophomore art students displayed a four-school Earth Day installation in the main hall today to invite students to reflect on their commitments to the Earth.

Art piece “Commitments to the Earth From Above” hangs in the main hall, installed to coincide with Earth Day (April 22). Sophomore art students facilitated the project, which includes contributions from the four-school community.

A group of us built it together,” sophomore Emma Hubbard said. “The concept was to give little paper clouds to kids in the elementary school and have them write what they hoped for the Earth.”

The installation, titled “Commitments to the Earth from Above,” features the global commitments of students from all four divisions, expressed through words, personal notes, and color expression, according to visual arts teacher Rachel McIntire.

It’s been lead by a sophomore class — Art Foundations II,” McIntire said. “They’ve been working with the art faculty to have students K through 12 write or interpret something they want to dedicate to the Earth moving forward as global stewards.”

Sophomores spent their art classes arranging the responses on the orbs of wood, allowing them to work as a team, according to sophomore Kate Ward.

“Working as a group and having collaboration was a really enjoyable experience,” Ward said.

The installation will continue to grow as the middle form continues reflect and add their marks during their chapel, according to McIntire.

“You can look up and it’s just a plethora of hopes for the Earth,” Hubbard said. “It’s pretty beautiful to see that.”
