Title: Marvelous Surrealist Café
The artist began a series of Surrealist faculty workshops in the fall. The goal was to stimulate the teachers to be aware of creating spaces for free creative play in all aspects of the curriculum. In the spring all the students participated in classic Surrealist art games, creating a host of surprising and amusing characters. These drawings were developed by the core mural students to become the people in the Marvelous Surrealist Café.
A character based on a collage by a second grader welcomes the students into the cafeteria with a quote from the great Surrealist, Andre Breton, “ The imaginary is that which tends to become real.”
