Last school year, the Art and Art History Club painted faces at Homecoming. This time around they plan to not only do that, but provide another creative way to show Post pride.
“We’re planning to [make] a big poster with POST written out in wax,” said senior Arts Management major and club secretary, Hannah Fitch. “Then we’ll fill up water balloons with paint and throw them at it. The idea is that when [people] throw [the balloons] the wax will not allow any paint over the letters.”
In preparation, the club is optioning various ways of constructing the poster and propping it up as a balloon target. These options include using painters tape, wax paper, melted wax, or crayons over the lettered areas. By involving participants to throw the balloons, showering the poster in color, the club will be demonstrating a collaborative art piece for Post pride.
A bake sale and the aforementioned face painting will also be included at the Art and Art History homecoming stall along with the balloon throwing, which will be free. All proceeds going towards club funding.
The Art and Art History Club meets Wednesdays in Hillwood Commons room 114 during common hour. All students are welcome. Members enjoy organized museum visits, coordinate lectures by art professionals and actively promote student and faculty art projects on campus.

Homecoming festivities will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 10.
