Then it is off to the galleries in search of food and beverages. (And art.)
The Museum of Contemporary Craft with a great Manuf®actured exhibit featuring everyday objects that have been transformed into art in unexpected and intriguing ways.
I’m particularly fond of the work of Livia Marin, one piece of which is made up of 2214 different sculpted lipsticks;
the work of Cat Chow, which consists of fabulous clothing made of nothing but zippers;
and that of Harriet Estel Berman, who makes elaborate teacups and other forms out of pieces of old metal dollhouses.
The museum also has some old friends on display, in the form of a fabulous exhibit of ceramics by Gertrude and Otto Natzler. I’ve had the great treat of seeing the Natzlers’ work a few times in the past and I’m pleased to be able to enjoy these elegant pieces once again.
