YSL at the Denver Art Museum
Wooohoo! Play date with Kay at the Denver Art Museum to see the YSL Yves St. Laurent) show. It is a blockbuster! Kay and I brought out journals but we noticed a guard directing another artist to put away her drawing tools; no photos or sketching allowed! Oh well, that just meant we had to commit everything gorgeous to memory. My favorite was - well everything! but the drama of walking into the tuxedo room was unforgettable. And there was the pink bow! The whole show is just wonderful, not to be missed. It is only on display until July 8 so hurry down. I bought tickets upon arrival so don't let the timed ticket system turn you off. Another highlight; watching the video and YSL sketching his models.
(By the way - the black strips are fabric left over from my experiments with mono printing for a fiber journal. These are collaged on gold tissue paper, addition of pink bow from brochure, meager sketches of the tuxedos from my memory of the show, text in sharpie and silver pens.)
