Incredible performance at The Crucible in Oakland on Friday night. A dystopian view of life sung in Germanic opera style with lots of pyrotechnics.
Also there is a great review from the SF Chronicle.
Not only is this a lovely interpretation of one of Dr. Suess’ most empowering stories, it also features our art project “The Way Inside Out” as a back drop in a couple of shots.
So if you ever feel low, then watch Oh The Places You’ll Go, the memories of the Playa, will lift you lighta’
The Thanksgiving holiday festivities continue on Friday night when the local members of the Unintelligent Society attended the opening of EXPOSED…a miniature show. The gallery space is its name, “EXPOSED” and it was cheek to jowl with attendees looking at the petite B/W prints in a variety of subjects that together presented a fascinating show. Bimbi is part of the group showing and we turned out in force to celebrate her work and to be part of a Carmel art happening.
A few friends from the collective imagination made an appearance at La Mirada for the Monterey Museum of Art opening of Pop Icons: Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
A mingling of attendees and their famous representations as such luminaries as Lady Gaga, Madonna and Anna Nicole Smith cruised about the galleries.
Jack Sparrow, aka Johnny Depp who was channelling the still breathing (remarkably) Keith Richards was on hand in his pirate best. Mr. Warhol was seen with Miss Coco Chanel on his arm. And there is Marilyn again.
Coco was elegant in a simple black dress with divine but subtle beading on the trim and silky belt. With her trademark pearls and chrysanthemum, she displayed a cool elegance that no one else can capture. Mr. Warhol showed his sartorial style in a well-cut dinner jacket.
Andy revisted The Factory but it was not quite how he remembered it. First there didn’t appear to be any nudity or any chance of any nudity. Though there were a few visitors who were drawing their interpretations of a Campbell Soup can. There were Campbell tomato soup shots being served and grilled cheese sandwiches along with white wine (no other color being served in order to protect the carpets.)
There’s Marilyn again. She seemed to be very attracted to the flashing of the cameras. Never resisting the chance to pose for the camera.
Though the event at the Museum ended at 8 pm, the party of the Fabulous Ones did not. The next stop was Esteban at the Casa Munras Hotel for Champagne cocktails, martinis and tapas. With all the star power in Monterey exuding from the patio at Esteban, the talk turned to the Playa…ideas for next year, memories of the past year, laughter and friendship. For all of the UDS members that couldn’t be with us last night, we missed you and your fabulous-ness too.
