Protest Tuesday: The Idea

It is amazing how a small object found at a thrift store can be the catalyst to a major art project.

I will explain.

Book awards.

I found a copy of Gone Wild: An Endangered Animal Alphabet by David McLemans at the local thrift store and was immediately impressed by it.

HYNE-SPAN

Each letter of the alphabet is an endangered animal and is accompanied by a box containing information on class, habitat, range, threats and status.

As I flipped through the pages the wheels began turning…  I thought linoleum block art as well as screen printing and began to envision a line of t-shirt along a public walk way.  I have seen someone do a duct tape torso manikin…

I could make  26, each one having a t-shirt…  And then I could put it along the public mural which celebrates the 1950’s in our local town…

Yea, that would be a good spot.  The place that idealizes and celebrates the decade where consumerism was born into it’s current form…

And that is how the idea was born.
