Have you seen this? It’s awesome.
It’s about Caine. He’s a boy from California who built his own arcade in his dad’s auto parts business. A film maker dropped by to buy some parts, bought a pass to the arcade, made a film about it and it took the world by storm.
The film and it’s popularity eventually launched the Global Cardboard Challenge. Last Friday, our school joined in. Millions of kids all over the world playing with cardboard. It makes me happy just thinking about it. Over the last few weeks our school gradually filled with cardboard. Every corner, cupboard, nook, really any space anywhere, was piled high with cardboard. On Friday the entire elementary spent the whole day building, designing, playing with cardboard.
Blake chose to build an art museum and build he did. The first building, the one on the left is the entrance to the museum, which is spelled MSYUMY, in case you were wondering. The doors take you to the kids area. The ladder takes you to the roof so you can slide into the painting gallery. The walls of the painting gallery are covered with works of art. The Mona Lisa is in there, and a Jackson Pollock painting that we read about in Olivia by Ian Falconer. There are a few Blake Hossack originals too. The third box is a sculpture/statue gallery. It was a bit tough to make those statues stand up, but he did it. All the statues are of aliens. After lunch, Blake spent a lot of time painting the exterior of his museum, but I didn’t get a pic. It is one cool museum. I wish you could see it
Proud of his creativity, proud of his enthusiasm, proud of his work ethic and perseverance and proud of SAS for sponsoring this event.
The Caines Arcade Scholorship Fund has raised more than 200,000 to send this cool kid to college some day. Check it out: CainesArcade.com
