Here’s what the Art Institute should do for their lion sculptures for Christmas 2011. Wrap them entirely in crochet. People would love it.

Here’s what the Art Insitute of Chicago did in 2010:
And what the lion sculptures wore in 2009:
What do you think the Art Institute lions should wear for the 2011 Christmas?
I also asked this question on the Spudart Fan Page. Here’s some of the feedback: # Brittany Westfall: chicken suits # Jen Klabis: The various Chi sports teams Santa hats. # Spudart: Brittany, chicken suits! haha! how about a reindeer suit? Jen, i like the idea of them wearing plain Santa hats. The lions give our sports teams enough attention when they are vying for a championship. # Spudart How about if we covered them in crocheted yarn like how someone recently did to the Wall Street Bull in New York City? https://www.spudart.org/blogs/randomthoughts_comments/5315_0_3_0_C/ # Jen Klabis: Okay that would be interesting. Random designs, or something specific? # Spudart: Ooo Jen! I dunno! I didn’t get that far about what the actual designs would be. What would the designs be… I’d like to think it would be ugly sweater design, but with Chicagoey things, like the architecture, oooh! haha. the sports teams haha! Why not! Famous Chicagoans, the lakefront. Wow, someone should totally make an ugly Chicago Christmas sweater. #
here’s the answer. You ready for it? It’s great. Put each lion in a giant gift box and have just their noses sticking out.
Bring me there!!!! I will take care if it!
Olek! What an honor that you are commenting on my blog. That would be so sweet if we can get the Art Institute of Chicago to have you cover the lions.
Wow! Olek commented on your blog!
Tom, I know! Isn’t that cool!? +waves+ Hi Olek!
