Knee High by Fourth of July

We gave it the ol' college try!

Today we reveal our response to your Fancy Flour Challenge of the Month. The source of this month's celebration was college orientations around the country - with a special focus on Bucknell University. Bucknell has a long standing history of shining when it comes to orientation. They pull out the stops by creating publications, t-shirts, props, events, gifts, and giveaways - all revolving around their thoughtfully crafted annual theme.

This year's theme? O-Museum.

While Bucknell's orientation staff members were busy bringing their theme to life by building dinosaurs, airplanes, artifacts, and pieces of art, we - the Highlowaha staff - were busy building our own exhibit.

We title this exhibit, If These Walls Had Ears.

On the North Wall...
John Deere, "Corn" and Author Unknown, "Nude"

On the South Wall...
Corntisse, "Gold Fish," Corndrian, "Composition No. 18," and
Joan Corno, "L'oro Dell'azzurro"

East Wall...
Vincent Van Corn, "Self Portrait" Andy Cornhall "Pop Corn"
Corntisse, "Gold Fish (again)"

and West Wall..
Cornasso "Weeping Woman" Cornasso "Evening Flowers"

And if none of those suit your fancy, how about this still life?
Give us an "A" for effort or an "F" for being "corny," either way... your turn! Win your own Ear of Corn (just in the nick of time to be the hit of all your fall festivities). Tell us another occasion for which you could use the corn cookie cutter, accompanied by your best attempt at a slogan.

Go ahead, get to the head of the class.

Signing off until tomorrow...

An invitation to a Children of the Corn themed Halloween party-
You are invited to an "Ear-ie" celebration!

Cheryl said...

Ooh! Two really good ones to start us off. The corn was really easy to decorate and look at them in that yellow wheelbarrow! Too cute. I've got art on the brain bantering with Claudia so I'll have to think about it and see if I can come up with something else.

It could also be used for someone who is sick or recovering:
"I EAR you're not feeling well! Get well soon!"
It's a little CORN-Y but I like it :)
