I love this re-creation of Seurat’s, "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of the La Grande Jatte", particularly because this took place in Beloit WI, not far from where I went to college. Beloit’s riverfront has undergone a tremenous transformation since I went college there. Incidentally, I was an art history major at Beloit and interned one summer at the Art Institute of Chicago where the original painting is housed. I actually thought that I’d go into museum education work for awhile as a result of this experience. I was telling my kids this weekend about working there, and about how peaceful it was  to walk in the galleries before the museum opened. Anyway, I think this is a fun model for doing a photography project with kids.
