Art Project – Commercial Christmas Tree

Coke, Gillette, Keystone

Artist is Paul Liu '12

Several Art 227 art projects are positioned around campus.  I thought this particular one was exceptionally thought provoking in a very simple way.

Paul captured the conflict,I think, with the traditional tree decorated in “ornaments” shaped as corporate logos.  There’s Apple, Dell, Chevy (for my friend Jim Davlin ’85!), GNC, McDonalds, Bud Light, Nike, etc.

It makes you think.  Isn’t that what all art does, anyway?

Nice work, Paul!

Happy Holidays!
