    I swear this crap is an inside joke with artists. They sit around with their berets in their coffee shops and giggle: Artist 1: "Dude, seriously, I got the university to display a bunch of weeners that I just randomly sent to people who painted them. The most work I did was carrying the box to the post office." Artist 2: "Really! That's almost better than when I pooped in a jar and got it displayed."

    Re: It's confirmed...

    So much funny in that article.

    Herky must be proud:

    ...

    Barwick described her project as a take on the university’s “Herky on Parade” celebration. That event featured 75 “Herky the Hawk” statues displayed around Iowa City in 2004 as part of a Kinnick Stadium anniversary celebration.

    And then there's this bit taking a cue from Tom Sawyer:
    Quote Originally Posted by TFA
    To make her project more collaborative, Barwick sent out plaster castings of a mold she ordered online to volunteers as far away as Miami who wanted to contribute to the project. Participants were invited to decorate the castings as they chose and send them back to Barwick to add to her collection.

    A gem from the comments section:

    The bigger joke is they'll get goverment funds to produce said crap.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    They should have just asked Hawk fans to do self portraits.

    I know you're trying to make artists appear condescending, but you really don't have to stoop to their level...
