Well this is amazing. SO, it’s officially on! Yesterday we posted about the end of the Washington Post’s Peeps Contest. And The PoP Peep Project was born. Well it’s born now thanks to teacher Shannon Heaton and the incredibly talented AP Art History students from Poolesville High School who have an annual “Art-historical Peep Show”. Right off the bat I was blown away by the entry above from Mark Herron, Paige Solans, and Avery Whitney-Blum. Their take on Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors is genius.
So I suppose I need to make up some rules. All entries should be emailed to [email protected] with ‘The PoP Peep Project’ in the subject line. Please include a brief description about your entry and please include 2 photos, one closeup and one capturing the whole scene. Entries should be based on local topics of interest and sent by the end of April. Depending on how many I receive, I’ll post all as I get them. I will then pick 5-10 finalists that you guys will vote on. I will take the winners out to dinner and drinks (unless the high school kids win, then just dinner.) I will also bury the winners (and 2nd and 3rd place) in PoPville t-shirts. Good luck!!
