Creepy Cute Continues

November 19, 2010

We had our fun with creepy-cuteness this week. I could hardly believe that the paper only had one or two photos of the artist’s work, when it was, by far, the biggest buzz on the campus since George W. came to speak this week (protests galore at a liberal arts school that paid hundreds of thousands to hear the former President speak (yikes))…Everyone has continued to gather around the statues, it’s cracking people up. I see couples grab for each other’s hands when they walk past them…it’s the strangest phenomenon.

The artist had to customize each piece to fit the statue…she even made little scarves for the birds, snakes and turtles around. I thought they deserved a bit more photo-recognition. What do you think?

By far my favorite, the squirrels. I freaked out, hit my head on a branch and just about lost it laughing when I saw them.

I hope squirrels in winter hats brighten your day…because if they do, you’ve got two doses of it. Don’t forget to check out today’s Mixtape Masters either, as cute as these little dudes are…it’s a favorite of ours.

    that is so humorous – what a great way to get people engaged with sculpture. very creative, I wish the squirrels would decide to take a road trip to Houston.

    These really might be the most fantastic things ever. Thank goodness for animals wearing sweaters and hats!
