Re: Clothes Hanger Collection

Joe, don't know what age you teach, but perhaps you could do a huge
collaborative sculpture--have students paint or wrap yarn around hangers,
etc., then assemble them in some huge sculptural structure. Perhaps you
could take it a step further and do a visual pun play onthe word "hanger"
to come up with a title for the sculpture--"all hung up", "hanging around",
"hang out", "hang in there", "hangover" oops, maybe not.

Good luck.
