Grass Suit

# 172

Middle school girls wielding lawn mowers chase a living grass suit down University Avenue. Rene Walker Soloman made the piece by spraying a suit with adhesive and coating it with grass seed. Nature and art worked their magic to create this tour de force. Soloman based the hilarious stunt on a similar performance in 1981 by artist Gene Pool. Pool went on to cover cars and a bus with grass. Even though Soloman's art is derivative, it shows stunning creativity in a high school student.
