Raytown artists from the middle schools collaboration displayed at Nelson Atkins Museum

Art students at all three Raytown Middle Schools partnered with local artist Carla Steck and other schools to create a replica of international artist Asheer Akram, who created the concept of the Pakistani Cargo Truck.

Akram’s vision was to juxtapose historical objects with contemporary art and culture, and he did so by revitalizing a burned out cargo truck.  He reconstructed the body of the truck, added height enough to stand as tall as two men, and then began the art phase.  A video of his work can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbVoh6BmXGM.

American artists took to the idea, and the Nelson Atkins Museum hosted students who had their work displayed on a mock cardboard Pakistani truck.  Raytown Middle School students, under the direction of Kris Dillon contributed prints and Molas.  Raytown South Middle School students, under the direction of Kim Snyder contributed pieces that used both printmaking and painting techniques, and Raytown Central Middle School, under the direction of Mary Burian, contributed circular designs.

Students from all three schools got to see the finished product in a day trip to the Nelson Atkins Museum.
