UPA 5th grade classes will be participating in The Elephant Project at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit.

African Artist Andries Botha presents Nomkhubulwane, a 9-foot tall, 1-ton South African elephant sculpture made from recycled motor truck tires which has traveled across the Atlantic. Says Botha, “It is made in collaboration with the Magqubo Ntombela foundation and the wilderness movement… This elephant serves as a creative symbolic reference that calls people to new imaginative conversations with our ailing co-existence with other living things.”

the school will be making a baby elephant that will be on display with the larger elephant at the museum! we will be making our with recycled paper.

i will post photos as we go along and as she/he gets a name, and a face.
