About the Artwork

Our sculpture is inspired by the old children’s rhyme:
A wise old owl sat in an oak. The more he saw the less he spoke. The less he spoke the more he heard. Why can’t we be like that wise old bird?

In the Upstate’s international community, the sharing of creative ideas and cultures is enhanced by the valuable communication skill of listening to others. Made of auto and bicycle parts as well as recycled tires, the owl stands vigilant and silent as he observes and reflects all that goes on around him. A wise guardian of international industry!

About the Team

ARTS Strong, INC. is the Tigerville Elementary School art club led by art teacher, Sherry Smith. The art club is a special group of individuals that have demonstrated great leadership in developing their art skills and possess a natural talent and gift for visual art.  This advanced ability deserves special attention in order to be nurtured and challenged.  We meet after school to work on special community and school projects. This project gave us a unique opportunity to work in the three dimensional. After the competition, our owl will have a home as guardian of an outdoor learning greenspace.
