100 Life-Size Cardboard Monkeys

Though cardboard sculptor and woodcutter James Grashow recently made headlines for his impressive sculptural installation called "Corrugated Fountain," looking through his website I couldn't help but want to share "The Great Monkey Project" instead. Back in 2008, Grashow created 100 life-size monkeys out of cardboard and then hung them at the San Jose Museum of Art's lobby. As he says, “The more monkeys you have, the more the space between them starts to jump. The ceiling becomes an abstract painting.” Don't they just make you want to smile?
