College Night Making Buttons at the High
Raoul and I got to be a part of the Frida and Diego event for College Night at the High Museum of Art. We had so much fun, here are some pictures I took that night. I did not get to take too many cos we were so busy making button badges with everyone that came to the museum that night!
We arrived early and set up our gear to make the buttons. We were making buttons inspired by Frida and Diego, and we had blank circles to make custom art buttons and also magazines and art books to use for button making, too.
We had markers, colored pencils, scissors...
And tons of one inch button making supplies! Our friend Shannon set up this event for us, and she told us to expect 2000 visitors to the museum that night!
Soon after seven o'clock, we had a line of students who made buttons! It was nonstop until 11:30! Raoul helped everyone press the button badges, then I helped them pit the pin back on. It was a fun process and everyone was happy with the buttons they created!
Here are some of the badges that were made that night. I especially liked the baby chick! That one is my favorite.
We had a great time making one inch pinback buttons at the High! In fact, we were so very busy that we did not get to see the exhibit, so we have to go back another time. I look forward to seeing the Frida and Diego art in person for sure!
