Plexiglass Divider Art Show   (+10)  [vote for, against]
Use those annoying dividers for something nice

Within the past year plexiglass dividers have gone up everywhere! I actually don’t see how this is a protective barrier, but as long as they’re there I think we should use them for something. My two trains of thought are:

1.Paste existing artwork onto them to make them more pleasing. Artworks can be paintings, Stain-glass, weavings, mostly flat stuff but some three-dimensional objects may be able to Stay fastened to the glass for sometime.Artworks may be changed frequently.

2. My second thought is that each divider should have a pocket fastened to it that contains erasable markers. This way if you have to sit in front of one of these screens for any length of time, you may doodle, play tic-tac-toe, or draw a masterpiece directly on to the glass.

There may be other brilliant uses for these Covid barriers! A pocket full of markers will certainly keep children occupied also.

(+) We had to put one up in the front office and I think they are ugly so I framed ours in live edge wood with the bark still on like a picture frame, [link] and when this crap is finally done with I intend to hang a painting in it.

Great idea. I also love join the dots ideas, so why not print lots of random dots and lines on them too for people to join up.

Maybe they just need great big curly mustaches and top hats painted on to make the person on the other side look a bit more like Snidely Whiplash.

>xanie< (If I may be so bold), this may just be your most brilliant idea ever. I would love to stop by some local spots with my markers. I would draw flowers and trees and beautiful scenes, (If I could draw that is). I love this more than 5 stars/buns can convey.

thanks [bliss] You made me smile! Also everyone else’s ideas are cool. I like the mustaches and top hats and then you could put your face up to it and take a selfie! Instant photo booth.

(This idea came to me when I was getting a pedicure yesterday and sat in front ((or is it behind)) one of those for nearly an hour!)

[+] The more sporadic, unique, thought provoking/act stimulating works he better.
