Public Art Projects
Hidden Spooky Sculptures Made for Free Halloween Treats!
Participants in this fall’s Sculpture Modeling, Plaster Casting, and A Public Art Project, an AVA class taught by Ernest Montenegro, had a great time working with clay to produce original sculptures in clay. Once the final designs were completed, participants made molds from which they created a series of plaster-cast multiples. The plaster sculptures were then hidden throughout the PowerHouse Mall on Halloween-where children and families could find these surprise gifts of art during the mall’s annual trick-or-treating celebrations.
AVA wishes to thank the PowerHouse Mall, the sponsor of this Public Art Project.
