Plaster Halloween Sculptures


Participants in AVA’s fall 2013 Sculpture Modeling, Plaster Casting, and A Public Art Project, taught by Claremont, NH artist Ernest Montenegro, had a great time working with clay to produce spooky original sculptures. Once the final designs were completed, participants made molds from which they created a series of plaster-cast multiples. The plaster sculptures were then hidden throughout the PowerHouse Mall on Halloween—where children and families could find them as free, surprise gifts of art during the mall’s annual trick-or-treating celebrations.
