UWO Alumna Starts Work on Titan Nutcracker

University of Wisconsin Oshkosh alumna Stacey Cluppert ’10, of Markesan, has been selected to transform the UWO alumni-sponsored nutcracker, as part of Oshkosh’s Nutcrackers on the Town community art project. The design for the “Titan Tools” nutcracker will focus on the basics of education, depicted in the colors of Titan pride … yellow and black.


Check out the video of Cluppert picking up the nutcracker in Oshkosh last month.  Look for updates on Cluppert’s progress as the art project develops.

    An update from Stacey: “I have started the most risky part of our nutcracker…getting him “naked”! I have been sanding off his traditional colors to prepare for his new UWO Titan colors. I have only started to collect a few of his Titan Tools … some keyboards and No. 2 pencils. Once I finish sanding and cleaning off the dust, I will continue to collect my materials and hopefully start attaching pieces in the next month.”
