On Friday, May 31st, the festivities for Skull Appreciation Day 2013 will begin! The Skull-A-Day team is heading to the International Museum of Surgical Sciences in Chicago, Illinois to meet up with Street Anatomy for the FaceOff Skull Art Exhibit. It’s going to be an amazing art show featuring skull artwork from selected artists around the world! SAD13poster

 The FaceOff Exhibit is a special type of art show where the artists used a provided template to create their skulls. The skulls were then vertically split in half digitally. Then two digital halves from two different artist were put together to form one skull. This gives the viewer a different perspective on artists’ visions of skulls.

 These FaceOff Skull creations will hang in the International Museum of Surgical Sciences in Chicago from May 31 till August 25, 2013. Westfield 8th graders will be visiting the art exhibit on Tuesday August 20th 2013 as a welcome back art & science field trip. 

Of course we don’t want to leave you all out as that wouldn’t be in the Skull-A-Day spirit; we want our fans to participate in the show! Considering such, create your own skull on the back of this sheet using the same exact template the other selected artists of the show used. Then your skull will be displayed at the art show as part of the Skull Exhibit on a screen during the show opening on Friday, May 31st. Sometime afterwards, they will be shown on Skull-A-Day website (http://skulladay.blogspot.com/)

 To participate in the FaceOff Exhibit with your own skull, you need to download the following: Skull Appreciation Day 2013

On the Bottom of that paper, put your Name, Age, and the Town you live in. Then flip the paper over and Fill in the Skull template on the back of this sheet with whatever images you choose using markers, color pencils, paint, etc. Please make sure the general lines of the template are the same, i.e. do not go outside of the lines, as these lines will be used to pair your skull with another artist’s skull creation. Also, make sure the imagery is kid friendly and school appropriate! All Skulls are Due Friday May 24th 2013
