Monsters and Fans Take Over Museum

Several of the Lake Erie Monsters’ younger fans and their families had the opportunity to sit down and show-off their creativity with Greg Mauldin and Joel Chouinard during the first ever “Build a Monster with a Monster” event at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Inspired by the museum’s newest exhibit Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids, fans played side-by-side with the two of the teams’ artistically talented players, to mold, sculpt and take home their very own monsters.

Showing their true competitive nature, Mauldin and Chouinard battled over who had created the better monster. Mauldin boasted a Mr. T-inspired snowman and a monster-fish, while Chouinard presented a construction hat donning Penguin and an indestructible dragon. But, it was several of Northeast Ohio’s young artists that won over the Monsters players, molding together impressive models of the Lake Erie Monster, dragons and one very impressive half-shark half-dragon.

At the “Build a Monster with a Monster” event, fans and their families sat around the table with the Monsters as they molded Play-DOH, signed autographs, posed for photos and of course, talked Monsters hockey. Along with being treated with complimentary tickets to the Monsters St. Patrick’s Day game this Saturday’s presented by Ohio Lottery; fans in attendance had the opportunity to walk around the museum’s Mythic Creature exhibit.

The newly erected exhibition transports attendees into a world of the science and history, where they are face-to-face with some of the world's most enduring mythological creatures. Filled with larger-than-life models, drawing and detailed descriptions, participants discover how humans around the world have been inspired by nature to bring fantasy creatures to life in stories, music and works of art.
