NATIONWIDE MUSEUM MASCOT PROJECT
"Taking it's cue from the sport's mascot, the Nationwide Museum Mascot Project seeks to promote art museums, galleries, and other art events across the United States.
The mascot is constructed near, or at the site using locally gleaned and recycled materials. Regardless of whether or not the mascot is invited; it inserts itself into the museum's structure. Through its unexpected appearance, silly handshakes, waving, and high-fives, it invites passersby to get excited about art. As mementos and promotional items,the mascot also distributes,for example, handmade brochures, stickers, buttons, pendants and food."
