I’m posting about these two exhibitions now mainly because we haven’t run a cat picture in quite a while, but also to serve as a reminder that the extremely interesting show (with a boring title), American Letterpress: The Art of Hatch Show Print is due to close this Sunday after a long run at the Experience Music Project. Catch it while you can.
Over in the other part of the building, Jim Henson’s Fantastic World is drawing in huge crowds (or at least it was on the free night I attended). While the exhibit could have benefited from a bigger gallery space, there were a lot of fascinating objects crammed in. To add insult to injury, a mother dragged her crying toddler over to see the case with Rowlf, referring to him as “Fonzie Bear.” Teach your children well.
