BMOA Dada Project

Bakersfield Museum of Art has a project going. It is a project where they take artwork by 3 different people and put them together. They provided 3 possibilities. Head, torso, or legs/feet.
They provided about 5 inch squares. These blanks even went out with the local newspaper.

Each person was to draw/paint their version of whichever piece they received. You didn't get a choice. The blanks had the part you were supposed to do. They had a few in the newspaper that had already been done. One had a mermaid tail for the feet. Well I did the "torso" of a cactus. I haven't yet been to the museum to see the results. I would like to see what head and feet were paired with my cactus.

It was a nice project as all were invited to join. You didn't have to have art background, and even kids could participate.

wow, you can even make a chunk of cactus look great.

I am so jealous.

Your "torso" came out great. If you get to see the exhibit, please take a photo of it attached to the other pieces so we can see it. Cute idea!

What a fun idea of the museum. Your cactus looks great. I can't wait to see a picture of all 3 parts together.
