UNI instructor designs Special Olympics cauldron

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — A University of Northern Iowa instructor has teamed up with students to create a cauldron for the Special Olympics games in New Jersey later this month.

UNI instructor Dan Perry designed the steel and aluminum cauldron that will be lit at the games June 14. The games, featuring nearly 3,500 athletes, run through June 21 with events at a number of sites.

It's the third cauldron created by the UNI art department for the Special Olympics.

The cauldron will include six curved metal spires that can be carried by coaches and athletes from the stadium entrance and then assembled during a ceremony.

UNI student Dallas Guffey and Tommy Riefe, a recent graduate, have been working on the project full-time for the last three weeks.
