Object MuseumPosted: September 18, 2014
In my practice of Teaching Artistic Behavior, I was inspired to grow the Drawing Center. I have a good set of books for references and materials to explore, but I was wanting to expand observational drawing beyond the objects in the studio. I came up with an “Object Museum” idea thinking of the little items brought home from my own travels and then realized how cool it could be if the community of our faculty were involved. So using a system of light weight cardboard boxes and objects, I installed the Object Museum! Each object has a # and a small card that shares the owner and why the object is meaningful. The museum is located above my workspace, so I do the reaching and returning. We launched the Drawing Center choice with 5th grade. They were very excited to experience this, learn something about a person in our community and also expand their observational drawing with transformation. I look forward to rotating the objects on loan and seeing the future inspirations of transformations…surreal settings!
