'Flash Mob' Dance to Feature Bag Monster May 1

Omaha - University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) health education students and students at Western Hills University Magnet Center, along with the Chicobag Bag Monster, will lead a "flash mob" dance Saturday, May 1, at 1 p.m. at the Joslyn Art Museum Sculpture Garden, 2200 Dodge St. Students from other schools and organizations will also join in the dance.

Dancers will perform to the "3Rs" (reduce, reuse, recycle) song by Jack Johnson as part of the culmination to the arts week of Omaha's World Environment celebration.  The Bag Monster, portrayed by David Corbin, UNO professor of health education, is made of 500 plastic bags, the average number of plastic bags that are used by each American every year.

Additional activities will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and visitors are invited to picnic on the Sculpture Garden grounds. For details, visit http://www.omahaenvironmentday.com and click on the "Events" link.
