Color on the Walls (Don't Stop)


The first session of camp officially begins tomorrow, but Blue Lake was host to several sessions of Suzuki courses this past week. In layman's terms, the Suzuki Method is an early childhood music training program developed in the mid-20th century for pre-school children, none of which is particularly pertinent to this post.  Needless to say, the cafeteria was SWARMING with 3 – 5 year olds for the entirety of last week. 

I couldn't help but be reminded of a recent installation at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art by Yayoi Kusama entitled The Obliteration Room, in which the artist began with a pristine, white room full of furnishings and, over the course of two weeks, had the child visitors to the museum plaster it with thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers.  The results are nothing if not a cacophony of color!
