A Very Modern Art Halloween


Can you guess what we were last year for Halloween? Does this help?
From MoMA
 The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí! I'm even signed!


Because I'm a sucker for details I added a pocket watch with ants, an ant ring, one false eyelash and another melting clock hanging over a stick in my hair. Guille, as Dalí, made himself an evil eye cane and funky mustache and then practiced his crazy face.


This year, we reversed roles...
from akgmag
I was Andy Warhol, Bucket was Edie Sedgwick...


...and Guille got to be pop art. Here's The Factory family:

From Art.com
Can you see the resemblance?


They don't exactly look thrilled but I had a blast!


Happy Halloween!

Hi! I love your Dali costume. We are going to an art themed costume party this year and I would love to copy your idea. How did you make the clock?

Hi Angie,
The clocks (there are 3) are made out of craft foam sheets that I painted, and I think I pinned them to my clothes. The one in my hair is hanging over a stick. Ha!
Have fun!
