Virus Paper Sculpture Assembly Workshop

Victoria Scott and Scott Kildall
Participants: 15-20, each child under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

From September 4th-14th, Scott Kildall and Victoria Scott will assemble Gift Horse in South Hall. Collaborate with the artists and make a brightly colored paper sculpture depicting a real or imaginary virus. After each person finishes their virus sculpture, they place it inside the belly of the giant Trojan Horse.

On September 18th, 2010, Greek warriors will pull the Trojan Horse through the streets of San Jose during the Green Prix parade. Afterwards, Gift Horse will be wheeled to the San Jose Museum of Art for a boisterous public ceremony and media event where Scott Kildall and Victoria Scott will “gift” the horse to the museum. In a finale, a trap door in the belly of the horse will open and release hundreds of the public’s colorful paper-craft virus artworks onto the museum floor.
