Angela Zirbes & Northwest Junior High Art Club
NWJH’s favorite Hawkeye moment would have to be when the Hawkeye football and basketball players visit our school. The athletes generate lots of excitement and the students enjoy talking with them!
about the artist
The crew was comprised of six 7th graders and one 8th grader from NWJH’s Art Club. They considered themselves truly lucky to be able to work on this project since the last time Herky Parade happened was ten years ago when they were 3-4 years old. Creating the sculpture was a collaborative project in which each crew member used lots of problem-solving and worked together to contributed their artistic and creative talents.
BEHIND THE DESIGN
Sean Brown, Emily Buck, Lydia Guo, Elisa Nisly, Nick Stilwell, Grace Wang, Angela Zirbes, and art teacher Anne Wyrick brought Bachelor Herky to life. From his bow tie to that all-important rose, Herky makes quite the impression!
