I was reading NPR this morning when I stumbled upon this article (an uplifting alternative to all the storm talk!) about an unusual artist who uses Crayola crayons to create brightly-colored sculptures. Herb Williams is a classically trained sculptor who began working with various found materials--such as cigarette butts and Q-tips—after wishing to push past the traditional bronze. Now he has a personal account with Crayola because he orders hundreds of thousands of crayons and uses them as a medium to make contemporary sculpture accessible to the everyday person. From NPR: For Williams, it's a great opportunity to bring art to a new group of people. "A lot of the folks I show the work to have no art background," Williams told us over the phone. "But they've held a crayon. It's a friendly way to invite them into my world, where I can introduce them to larger ideas."
