Wear Your Art

First: If you are in reasonable driving range of Salem, hasten yourself to their new World of Wearable Art exhibit sometime between now and June. Catherine and I went to the opening today and were blown away.

Second: Check out those earrings that Catherine made at an upcycling, wearable art workshop! They have wire hoops that hook around her ear, making them ideal for her non-pierced ears.

Third: I made the circles brooch for Catherine, using vinyl from previous exhibit signs and staples, but it was C who made it pop by adding the sliver of light blue behind it. I may try, but she’s the one with the eye for detail 🙂


I’m always a big fan of interesting museum exhibits and clever installations. I definitely love the ankle height mirrors below the cases in the Peabody Essex Museum’s exhibit, Shoes: Pleasure and Pain. The contrast between the very interesting shoes in the display and my own, fairly pedestrian, footwear is striking.
