Elephant Sculpture Workshop


Bring the kids to Crown Hall for a hands-on storytelling and drawing workshop with Nomkhubulwane, an elephant made from recycled truck tires (Nom-koo-bull-wah’-nee).

Andries Botha, a renowned South African sculptor, has created 17 life-size elephants from recycled materials. Botha’s Human Elephant Foundation sends the elephant sculptures to sites around the world to spark wonder about issues of ecology, conservation and sustainability.

When:   Saturday June 12 | 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.

Where:  S.R. Crown Hall, 3360 S. State St., Chicago, IL

Who:  Kids age 5-12 (and their families)

Cost:    Free! But space is limited and reservations are required.

Nomkhubulwane will be on IIT’s Main Campus from June 1 – 12, with generous support from IIT’s WISER (Wanger Institute for Sustainable Energy Research). The workshop is co-presented by Openlands.
