Congratulations to Nikhil Wagher and Hannah Laufenberg who took 1st place in their age group for their 3D 3R sculpture titled, Refunction, Dysfunction! They created a prosthetic arm holding hands with a real arm to exhibit the importance and growing advances in prosthetics that help people who have lost limb function in their daily lives. They repurposed over 20 different materials including items such as copper sheeting, cardboard, aluminum cans, old keys and hair curlers.

Congratulations to Laylon Baucom! His team’s sculpture titled, Not Half Bad, took 1st place in their age group for their 3D 3R sculpture. Not Half Bad was created using items such as milk cartons, egg cartons, soda bottles, toothbrushes, and junk food adds. Students juxtaposed the positive impacts of a healthy lifestyle and the negative impacts of an unhealthy lifestyle.

Students had 2 hours to create a sculpture out of repurposed, recycled, re-useable materials following the theme “Technology for Health”. This event took place at the Figge Art Museum on Saturday, October 17th and was organized by Global Awareness Citizens.  

All of the students’ sculptures will be on exhibit at Bucktown Center for the Arts, 225 E. 2nd Street, Suite 102 & 104, Davenport, Iowa 52801 at the Bereskin Fine Art Gallery & Studio.

Great collaborative efforts and fun at the Figge!
