Giant Pink Flamingo x 2, at the MFA shop in Houston

FlamingogoThere’s no business like the pink flamingo business, especially at the Moss Bureau enhanced shop at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. These babies get a lot of attention. No surprise, really. Just the thing to be riding around your pool on these hot hot summer days. Giddy up, Divine! Eat your heart out, John Waters.

Getting High. The High Museum in Atlanta, that is

folkartWe were in Atlanta for two days at the High Museum and came away impressed. Two great buildings (one by Richard Meier, the other by Renzo Piano) and a very quirky and deep permanent collection of among other things American Folk Art of which this is a weird and wonderful example. By the Reverend Howard Finster. Click on it to see it larger. Take half an hour and really look at it. Click here for the museum itself.
