In recent weeks, Hannibal High School students have been working on their part of the county-wide art project that will be presented at this year’s Harborfest.
The project, spearheaded by the CNY Arts Center, will be a stained glass mural of Van Gogh’s famous painting “Starry Night” and will consist of various colors of glass bottle fragments. The mastermind behind the concept and creation of the mural is Arts Center member Leslie Paice.
The Hannibal math students of Sally Kingsbury’s class have developed an equation for enlarging the painting, to determine the approximate number of bottles and jars needed for the mural. Using the dimensions of the mural frame, and the average size of the bottles being used, they determined that approximately 3,260 bottles will be needed to complete the mural.
