Help Build a Whale at VCU this Week

In or near Richmond, VA? Love whales? This just may be a project for you:

help wanted: whale builders
Tuesday, February 23rd any time between 12pm-5pm at 1000 W Broad Street, Fine Arts Building lobby. Help Shay Church & the VCU School of the Arts students of Craft/Material Studies build a life-sized whale. Come dressed formal in your Sunday best ready to get dirty. Learn more about whale building and see video of past installations by visiting Shay's website.

Oh how I wish we'd built a whale back when I was in this program.

  1. Is it just me, or has Craft/Material Studies really kicked it up a notch since we left? I feel like they do way cooler stuff now than when we were there.

  2. Oh, that looks like fun! What a great project!

  3. Yes I know! I love that you are required to help build the whale in your Sunday best!

    Kelly, I totally feel the same way. Would have loved to be a part of something like this back then but am also happy to see the school continuing to stay on the top/innovate.
