Flowering Hands

Lot # 26 (Sale Order: 26 of 39)      

Artist:Courtney Shudak Patron: The Ostergard Family

I was inspired by growth; growth in how a flower grows and also how we grow as individuals.  Something takes place in us, like a seed being planted, as we begin to serve others and help one another.

A small action, whether it be from volunteering in your community, serving in church ministry, or everyday opportunities to show love to others, can make a big difference.  Just like how a small seed can produce a big beautiful flower.

This creation is titled ?Flowering Hands? in hope to represent how we grow like a flower when helping those around us.

Stronger Together

Lot # 29 (Sale Order: 29 of 39)      

Artists: Allie Laing & Alex Rapp Patrons: First Lady Susanne Shore & Governor Pete Ricketts

Nebraska is where some of the most hardworking, passionate, and creative people live.  It?s home to various cultures, peoples of different backgrounds, and tight knit communities who care about one another.  In today?s society, there?s power in numbers.  When we support each others dreams we can accomplish more tan we thought possible.

This piece was inspired by living in a world that focuses on acceptance.  We are stronger together.  Every day we?re seeing a positive shift in society to have a borderless identity where gender, sexuality, or culture doesn?t keep us from being a united community.  No matter where you come from, no matter what your background, and no matter your passions, lending a helping hand and routing for one another can only spur us forward.  Through bright colors intertwining shapes, we hope this sculpture will bring light in to our community and empower those who come across it.

Monarch Butterfly - Metamorphosis of Life

Lot # 30 (Sale Order: 30 of 39)      

Artist:Darlene Jansen Patrons: Bob & Jan Fitzsimmons

My inspiration for Monarch Butterfly ? Metamorphosis of Life represents the  Campus Life organization?s mentorship giving teenagers guidance to spread their wings like the butterfly as they evolve into maturity and to help lift their confidence. The monarch and wild sunflowers reflect the opportunity the organization gives to teenagers for experiencing nature?s beautiful calm environment and the support of healthy relationships.  Colors depicted within the serving hands ~  the blue represents  ?sky is the limit,? the yellow represents  ?warm mentoring? and the green represents ?help in building a solid foundation for life.?  Included in the greenery is the acknowledgment of Celebrating 50 years of service.

Serving Hands Reflect Helping Hearts

Lot # 32 (Sale Order: 32 of 39)      

Artist: Kim Fitzekam-Szelag Patron: Nonprofit Shared Services

The artist?s vision and inspiration is to enable a person to see himself reflected in this work as having a generous, open heart and able to give as much of himself as possible to help his community.  People will be able to see themselves reflected from every side of the piece.  On the front of the piece, in the palms of the hands, they will also be able to see a heart (above, below, peripherally, etc.)

The inspiration for the mosaic mirrors covering the piece is about reflection; reflection of our community, reflection of self when viewing the piece and seeing one?s own potential, reflection of the size of our own hearts and our ability to give.  The reflective possibilities are endless.

The inspiration for the fused hearts is all about giving ? with heart.  The use of five hearts is to acknowledge 50 years, one per decade, of Campus Life.  The various sizes could have different interpretations also, depending on one?s own perspective.  In addition, the fused hearts are symbolic of the continued growth of Campus Life as well as our community.  Artistically, the fused hearts add depth and dimension to the piece, allowing the eye some relief and perspective.

The Hollow

Lot # 33 (Sale Order: 33 of 39)      

Artist:David Manzanares Patron: LI-COR Biosciences

This sculpture is inspired by a poem by Pablo Neruda: Potter

Your whole body has

a fullness or a gentleness that is destined for me.

When I move my hand up
I find in each curve a dove
that as if it were seeking me, as
if they had, in love, made you of clay
for my own potter's hands.

Your knees, your breasts,
your waist
are missing parts of me 

That like a hollow
fill the thirsty earth
a form, that together
we are complete like a single river,
like a single grain of sand.

Nurture and Protection

Lot # 35 (Sale Order: 35 of 39)      

Artists:Liz Shea/Sculptor: David Manzanares Patron:Bettenhausen Family Foundation

A mother bird with her baby birds will always have an important and meaningful place in my heart.  Nurture is a synonym of nourish and I have tried to emulate the mother bird?s fierce protective and nurturing skills in the ways I have raised my own children, focusing on safety, leading by example, basic trust and love.

?Good mothers pour care into the souls of their children much like sunlight and water pour nutrients into a plant.  Our souls flourish when we are being nurtured and cared for.  We grow, develop, and change according to the way we were designed?without nurture we wither.?  Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend.

In His Hands

Lot # 36 (Sale Order: 36 of 39)      

Artist: Diane Ogden Patron: Anderson Auto Group

One?s unique fingerprint, not always visible to the human eye, leaves a mark on a surface of patterns, or spiral or concentric circles, often described as complex, intricate and elaborate.  Usually thought of as a way to identify a person, our fingerprints may provide a scientific way to determine who we are. However, a fingerprint may also relate to the impression we leave on others in terms of how we treat them. In other words, a blueprint or template of expectations, friendship, or mentoring.

Supported by Grace

Lot # 38 (Sale Order: 38 of 39)      

Artist:Kate Wilcox Patron: Willmar Electric Company

This piece represents the students involved with, and impacted by Campus Life and Youth for Christ.  From my experience, Campus Life was always based on fun and support, but backed by spiritual and biblical foundations.  In this piece, the students are laughing, learning and bonding, all while being supported by the Bible.  The diversity is an example of the cultures and challenges we all bring to the table, and the camaraderie shows the ability to welcome all and grow together.

By the Light of the Moon

Lot # 39 (Sale Order: 39 of 39)      

Artist: Matthew Clements, Solar/Lighting: Jeff Larsen Patrons: Lee & Suzanne Sapp

Outdoor nights in Lincoln are the inspiration for this piece.  As a runner, I enjoy hitting the Jamaica trail, or running through Pioneers Park in the evening, and night.  These runs are especially amazing during months when the fireflies are out, and the moon and the stars are shining brightly. This piece is to inspire others to go outside at night, and enjoy the awesome spectacle nature has to offer after the sun goes down.
