Global Empathy
Berwick Alternative Elementary School

10' x 5' 3D wooden sculpture mural

Global empathy means listening to all the voices on the planet. It is the action of treating all human beings as unique and beautiful pieces of Art. As great listeners, we celebrate what makes us different and we hold each other’s hands when we are mistreated for being different. “Holding Hands” is a large mixed media sculpture of an acrylic globe surrounded by rings of small wooden hands holding up the world. In the spirit of global empathy, 586 Fine Arts Pathway students and teachers from Columbus City Schools Summer Experience 2022 co-created this community sculpture with the Super Art League. The mirror inside of this globe is a reminder for all of us as viewers to see and treat each other as a reflection of ourselves. Global empathy is everyone’s responsibility.

Summer Experience Beehive 400 Students

Summer Experience Beehive
Columbus City Schools

9' x 5' 3D wooden sculpture mural

Nurtured by Queen Bee Dazzle, the Summer Experience beehive is buzzing with excitement!

This Columbus City School Special Education community sculpture is made up of 400 individual wood honeycombs hand painted by the 2021 Summer Experience students and staff. In addition to Queen Bee Dazzle, 13 worker bees also hover over the beehive to represent a learning community of grades K-12.

Painting a sculpture together as a group project supports the Summer Experience Program learning objectives of friendship, teamwork, and community.

To quote Queen Bee Dazzle, “Honey, the sweetness is in the learning!” She is a member of the Super Art League’s cast of community friends. The sculpture is a collaborative effort designed and built by the Super Art League and The Bee Collective.

Gabby the Giraffe

Gabby the Giraffe 2019

9' x 5' 3D wooden sculpture mural

Gabby the Giraffe, a public sculpture, is a collaboration of 320 children building community together through Art.  The painted spots represent the unique contribution of creativity from each individual.  The image in the sun is a Girafficorn named Gesso.  They (non-binary pronoun) are inspired by the Native Alaskan totem style to remind us of the work of ancestors that paved the way for the type of community we are now capable of building together.
This beautiful 3D collaboration has a permanent home and will proudly stand at the South Side Early Learning Center, here in Columbus Ohio!

Inky the Octopus

Inky the Octopus 2018

4' x 8' 3D wooden sculpture mural

Inky the Octopus, a public sculpture, is a collaboration of 144 children building community together through Art.  The painted suction cups represent the unique contribution of creativity from each individual. 
This beautiful 3D collaboration has a permanent home hanging proudly @ Ronald McDonald House Charities in Columbus, Ohio.

140 artists collaborated at our tent over this two day event to paint the suction cups for inky the octopus arms!  The Super Art League Staff painted the body and the kid community was invited to become part of this art venture by painting the 3 to 5 inch round shapes. The results are a collaboration of epic size and among a community of epic talent. Thank you Franklinton Arts District!

Children will learn teamwork, friendship, and community.

Our goal is to introduce fun and enriching Art subjects that challenge youth to think about themselves, their projects, and their neighborhoods.  This type of thinking builds cognitive skills that contribute to their success: concept development, problem solving, motor development and peer collaboration. 
 
We make Art accessible to all children regardless of socioeconomic status.
