Wild Aurora - Melissa Cole
        
Wild Aurora
"Wild Aurora" is made up of seven scenes which highlight local Alaskan species including, moose, wolves, swans, belugas, bears, eagles and two species of salmon. It consists of mixed media: acrylic, glass and stone on twenty-three 40 inch x 60 inch wood panels. It was commissioned by 1% for Art, Anchorage AK with a budget of $36,000. I worked directly with the entire student body of 250 students to embellish wooden sculptures of wildflowers and salmon, which I later incorporated into the final artwork. This project was installed in July 2015 in the lobby and hallways of Aurora Elementary School, JBER, Anchorage, AK.
