"It's Alive" involves artists re-imagining a new vision for classic Monsters such as "Frankenstein" in 2011 and the return of the project this year, requiring artists from around the country to re-imagine the "Bride of Frankenstein".
|I think they should auction off these giant sized posters of Elsa Lanchester!|
Each artist was given a resin coated foam core bust of the "Bride of Frankenstein" and asked to develop a creative vision for a new "Bride of Frankenstein" using the bust as it's foundation. Several of the artists were also given a mannequin for a complete body.
|Is it just me or was the Bride of Frankenstein kind of "hot"?|
Over 80 pieces by renowned sculptors and artists will be auctioned on Ebay (Seller ID ItsAliveBride) in September. The proceeds of the auctioned items will be donated to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
Here's a few photos I took of some of the sculptures. These are about the best I could do without holding up the line...
One of the full size creations was by a really helpful guy I've gotten to know through taking his classes at Reynolds Advanced Materials, Scott Fensterer. I thought his creation turned out really awesome with her basket full of goodies. Just your normal she-monster on her way to a picnic!
