Art for the Sky 

When: Wed., April 21, 12-2 p.m. 2010

As part of an Earth Day celebration, hundreds of students, parents and community members will use their bodies to form a living painting—in the form of a poison dart frog—that can be seen from the sky. Aerial photographs will be taken and displayed later in Chapel Hill and Pittsboro. CIS students chose the South American poison dart frog because it is brightly colored and on the critically endangered list.

Art for the Sky has centuries of history in South America. In Peru, for example, giant animals, gods and geometric figures can be seen etched in the earth. The outdoor art experience happens at the school, 2089 Lamont Norwood Road, from noon to 2 p.m. —Lisa Sorg
