Art bombs: a Harden cameo and Gates door

Artists call it “art bombing”: taking art to the streets to increase awareness and give artists more opportunity to showcase their many talents. UW-Green Bay has been unofficially bombed — yesterday a faculty member’s office door, today, well take a look at the giant cameo necklace with a remarkable resemblance to Chancellor Harden on the Studio Arts Building exterior. And don’t be surprised if these unsigned masterworks are the first of more “bombings” to come, especially as it relates to our 2012-13 Campus Common Theme: Creativity.

The first photo below shows how textile students and friends yarn bombed Prof. Alison Gates office door as a salute of appreciation.
