The Museum Mascot Project Goes To Paris

The Museum Mascot Project recently visited Paris and created an impromptu mascot for the jewel of Modernism in the City of Light – The Pompidou Centre.  Created by Los Angeles-based artists Christen Sperry-Garcia and Brian Dick, the Pompidou Mascot was a serious hit in Paris during a cool summer day. 

From their web site:

The Nationwide Museum Mascot Project promotes art museums with custom made, sports team‐like mascots that engage with visitors and staff a like through handshakes, high‐fives and hugs, pro‐museum sign-picketing,social networking and workshops. Freegiveaways range from homemade buttons and stickers to balloons, zines and corn‐dogs. This project is on the tipping point between sincere promotion and playful parody.
