This is the way I dressed up for Halloween.
as a Disco Daceler.
Here are some of the things I did to celebrate Halloween.
__ went to a school carnival
__ collected money for UNICEF
__ had a class party
__ went trick or treating
Other things I did to celebrate.
went to a Church party.
__ played more tricks
__ got more treats this year than I did last year.
Oh, I so hope that there AREN'T photos of this Halloween costume. Not only couldn't I spell, but I'm sure I couldn't dance. A Disco dancer at a CHURCH party? The horrors. I was too young for this to be an ironic artistic statement.
Wasn't disco over by 1981 anyway?

The artist selected is apparentlhy known for his works in a variety of formats, including sculptures and installations, with a focus on combining text and images. According to the press release, "the subject of his art often concerns ideas of tact, the trappings of careerism, the construction of persona, and the pathology of addiction."
Imagine our surprise when this showed up:
The work is called:According to the press release, "this thirty-foot long wall piece consisting of a twenty-foot ripple-fold drape with [the artist's] own custom printed fabric alongside a text piece in metallic relief which reads, "last in the elevator, first out." The curtain hints both that something is being concealed and gestures toward a private space free of distraction. The text is a double entendre that offers not only a literal strategy to entering the nearby elevators, but also advice that success often requires determination beyond immediate reward. [The artist] says that he has created a work for students and professionals with talent, both intuitive and trained, participating in a practice that goes well beyond discipline alone. "
UMMM. WHAT?! The Trustee paid HOW much for THAT?!
In any event, the big, pink shower curtain (as I'm calling it),
Personally, I think this is more artful than all of them together. Maybe I just like "natural art."
Which do you like?
