People I Know: Nationwide Museum Mascot Project (NWMMP)

Nationwide Museum Mascot Project -- http://nationwidemuseummascotproject.org/

Nationwide Museum Mascot Project — http://nationwidemuseummascotproject.org/

The Nationwide Museum Mascot Project (NWMMP) promotes art museums through custom made, sports team-like mascots that engage with visitors and staff alike with handshakes, high-fives and hugs, pro-museum sign picketing, social networking and workshops.  Free giveaways range from homemade buttons and stickers to balloons, zines and corn-dogs. This project is on the tipping point between sincere promotion and playful parody.

Since 2008, the Nationwide Museum Mascot Project has represented an expanding list of art museums that include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Diego Museum of Art, and Orange County Museum of Art.

Though often invited, the Nationwide Museum Mascot Project loves museums so much that sometimes we just show up!
