Kansas students create art for Dream Rocket Project
The Associated Press
Art created by Kansas students will be among those wrapped around a 365-foot replica of the Saturn V rocket at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala.
A visiting assistant professor at Washburn University helped elementary students from Rossville and St. Mary create 550 pieces of artwork for the Dream Rocket Project.
A news release from the Topeka university says the Saturn V rocket will be wrapped with more than 8,000 pieces of art in 2014.
Beforehand, all submissions are being displayed in venues such as libraries, schools and museums. A show is planned at the Wamego Public Library in April.
The young artists submitting their work come from hundreds of cities across the United States and other countries. © 2012 Wichita Eagle and wire service sources. All Rights Reserved. www.kansas.com Read more here: www.kansas.com/2012/02/22/v-print/2225431/kan-students-cr...
