Jack-O-M-G of the Day: The MoMA carved van Gogh’s The Starry Night into a pumpkin— your Jack-o’-lantern is invalid.
1) I wonder who had this job at the museum? Master Pumpkin Carver extraordinaire, or the poor lowly intern?
2) Wouldn’t this be a great participatory opportunity? Invite your facebook fans (where the photo was originally posted) to carve their pumpkins featuring something from your collection and offer a membership discount or some such to the winner?
While the museum where I volunteer does a fantastic Halloween event, I don’t see all that many institutions here taking full advantage of the occasion. This would be a great opportunity for a timely participatory event!
