SMITHFIELD, Utah – High school students in northern Utah have completed a 6,400-square-foot replica of Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night” out of breakfast cereal.

Sky View High School teacher Doyle Geddes led more than 150 students on the project, which used two tons of colorful Malt-O-Meal spread across the gymnasium floor. The project took about a week and was completed Saturday. Geddes says he wanted to find a way to better connect students with art.

The replica was taken apart later Saturday. The cereal was given to a farmer to feed pigs.
