GREAT idea, Mary Jane. Sounds like a parent volunteer-o-rama mask
hang-a-thon! Maybe some of the masks should be on dowels glued into a
base. Some on the wall, and the rest will be worn by children in their
academic classes! The possibilities are endless. They could be worn by
our HS football team to frighten off their opponents. (Gee...could we
actually win a game or two???) I can see it now...the art department
serves Athletics! Everyone's Halloween costume could be designed to
complement their mask. Children could strap them to their backs like a
turtle shell and wear them around for a week or two. We could photoshop
all of them and feature them on our website. They could each make two
and let their alter-ego wear one of them. Or their parents could shadow
them at school and each parent would wear one. I would love to do
something really creative with the display...hmmmm....what is practical
and what is "off the wall", lol.
