Thank you to MAW for generously supporting the Columbus Public Schools Mannequin Project! (CPSMP)
What IS CPSMP, you ask?
It is a project to raise funds for the purchase of wooden, hand-made artist mannequins which will eventually live in a few--yet to be determined--art classrooms within the Columbus Public School system... ... The mannequins will first be used in an installation for the Patterns exhibition at Tacocat Cooperative in May 2014.
After the exhibition, the mannequins will then be given to Columbus Public Schools. "It is about how one act, in this case putting the mannequins in the classroom, creates a positive ripple effect, a pattern of creativity, that extends beyond the act of giving and the object." Won't you support this project? Columbus Public Schools Mannequin Project
