Episode 50: Cereal Box Art



Who knew cereal boxes could be such a source of artistic creation and inspiration? Apparently these artists did!

From Micheal Albert, who created the 'Cerealism' movement (that's art made with cereal boxes if you weren't sure). To Guillermo Fajardo (we mistakenly named the wrong artist in the podcast, our apologies) who has reimagined the front of cereal boxes, from Captain Crunch to Trix.

Did we mention the sea worthy canoe, or the Gettysburg Address made of cereal boxes? The list could go on and on.

In the mean time Julia's busy creating her own cereal box art which has inspired a contest here on Arts and Facts!

Here's the deal, create a unique piece of art using cereal boxes, take a picture of it and post it on our Facebook page here. (We'd love it if you liked us on Facebook too!) A month from now, on February 16th a winner will be announced and a prize will be awarded.

Since this is an impromptu contest we don't know what the prize will be yet, but we'll think of something fairly cool and let you know what it is!

Don't know who created this canoe, but it's pretty cool.
