Re: Join The Fundred Dollar Bill Project!
- Yes, please check out the website for this worthy project! Not only
can students have a voice through art, they can see how collectively
we can make a difference, how art can effectively communicate an
idea, and see a sculptor who uses his art in unusual ways.
"This creative collective action is intended to support OPERATION
PAYDIRT, an extraordinary art/science project uniting three million
children with educators, scientists, health care professionals,
designers, urban planners, engineers and artists. Together they are
working to make safe the lead polluted soil of New Orleans that
places thousands of children at risk for severe learning disabilities
and behavioral problems, including violent crime."
I found it exciting and promising that plants were used to reabsorb
lead from the soil, and that if successful, this method could be used
in other cities with high lead pollution.
Participate and then spread the word!!
