Most artists will tell you that they find inspiration all around them…and this summer, you can, too! If you live in Chicago, Florida, or California, Scholastic Awards alum Andy Warhol’s iconic Campbell’s Soup Can (Tomato) will be on display in a very public place near you. In fact, this painting and 57 others, chosen by fellow Americans, will appear all across America—for August only—for free! What a way to celebrate what would be the 86th birthday of Andy. Read More
As part of their support for the Awards, Colossal Media is installing Lost Time, a photograph by Gold Medalist Steven Paul, a senior at Edward R. Murrow High School, as a massive, hand-painted public mural on the wall of a building at Broadway and Bedford Streets in Brooklyn.
We stopped by over the weekend to check out the process, and you can still watch them paint today as they finish up painting the face and hair. There is a beautiful pedestrian mall with tables situated under umbrellas and plenty of yummy restaurants, so grab a slice of New York style pizza and watch the Wall Dogs work their magic! Read More
