"First I start with sheets of paper" — Picasso

A dream subject for a family day! Picasso and his sculptures of figures. The Horta hall transformed into a long production line of varying heights all in an exploration of creating sculptures inspired by Picasso's characters, using a variety of materials. Paper—Clay—Wire—Wood—Found Objects.

I designed the space in two long rows. The low tables had paper to begin making a figure, and then the next tables were filled with wire and clay and the high tables with found objects and wood with glue guns to add the things.

Each visitor was given a wooden platform to create their figure. These creations could be taken or left in our ever growing community exhibit of characters inspired by Picasso's work. It was a massive success with a record number of visitors 3146 in total for the day! Can't believe we managed to have enough materials and platforms, but we did, and it was beautiful! Such a great day and even greater collaboration with BOZAR Education! 

Enjoy the slideshow and be inspired! 

The exhibit is over at BOZAR, but you can still download the catalog here and it is really nicely written.
