The World Bank commissioned Scott Hunter to participate in their October, 2009 Hand washing Day Event at their Washington, DC Headquarters.  In collaboration with World Bank’s Water and Sanitation Program and Community Outreach Program, the Art Program designed and hosted an all-day interactive event for all employees and their children.  Scott's project was to support the art-and-science educational program by teaching about germs while emphasizing the importance of hand washing in preventing the spread of infectious diseases.  In order to do this, Scott's project had children create their own unique "germs" out of small sculptures.  The students created their own "germs" to raise their consciousness about the importance of washing their hands.  After the event, the 30+ small sculptures were then used to create a living mobile of germs. The mobile was then hung and displayed in the main atrium area of the World Bank Headquarters.  A small ceremony was held to unveil the mobile sculpture with many of the children there to see their finished work.
