Hoover Students Visit with Nationally Acclaimed Artist
On Wednesday, March 31, students in Mrs. Reed’s class at Hoover Elementary were joined by professional Domino Artist Lily Hevesh for lunch.
Hevesh designs, builds, and topples thousands of dominoes to create beautifully intricate chain reactions. “As the #1 world-renowned Domino Artist and Forbes 30 Under 30 Lister, Lily has worked with Fortune 100 brands including Google, Disney-Pixar, Marvel, Ford, Johnson & Johnson, and Marriott to make eye-catching commercials and once-in-a-lifetime events” (Hevesh5.com).
Mrs. Reed’s class became interested in Hevesh’s creations after they read an article on her as they analyzed texts across genres in their 6th-grade English Language Arts class. Students reached out to Hevesh and requested a meeting with her, which was quickly arranged. During lunch, Hevesh shared with the class about how she got her start in domino creations, how perseverance has led her to success, the importance of writing to get your voice heard, and how the domino-building process occurs.
