Thanks to the hard work of Enviroschools regional co-ordinators Jenny Neilson and Jennie Upton as well as many others who helped out, Velvet was on display at the Dunedin City Library last month. Although we all got a good laugh at some mis-quotes and mis-spellings, this newspaper article: Dunedin article on the event is still sweet-as…….. especially with Jenny and Jennie showing off the velvety panels!
Also, Channel 9 interviewed Jenny Nielson about Velvet’s part in the International Science Festival. Check it out: http://www.ch9.co.nz/node/24881 “Cheers” to Jenny for doing such a great job representing our social art project and supporting environmental education in NZ!
These two lovely Enviroschool ladies also helped the children’s section of the library create a Dunedin panel before Velvet migrates out of Otago. Here are a few photos of the making of the colorful, lively piece:
