picassoStudents in Comeaux High’s Academy of Visual and Applied Arts plan to burn the artist Pablo Picasso in effigy Friday at the school, according to a brief account in The Advertiser.

The academy’s director, Bryan Lafaye, tells the daily, “We will be celebrating the life of a very creative human being, that being Mr. Picasso, in a performance art sort of way. We accept his challenge to continue the fluidity of change, of creative ‘ready-mades’ and the theater of the absurd.”

We’re not precisely sure what that means, but kudos to the administration at Comeaux for letting this exercise in flammable creativity take place, assuming the administration is aware of the stunt and hasn’t put the kibosh on it already.
