Tick tock: Marcel Wanders for Cosme Decorte
MM Pre-Holiday/Winter exhibition

Curator's Corner, 12/1/2012

CC logo This week's links.

- I'd love to see this exhibition celebrating Revlon's 80th anniversary.  Too bad it's in London.

- Did you know there's a whole museum devoted to hair?!

- Oof.  Australia-based beauty brand Illamasqua misses the mark with their latest ad campaign featuring a model in blackface.  Why, why?

- Add this to the list of ridiculously expensive luxury beauty items:  Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura ruby-encrusted false eyelashes, which retail for approximately $1,500.  And the lash glue isn't even included!

- Great piece on why feminist art matters now.

- On the local front, today is Holiday Heap, the Charm City Craft Mafia's annual holiday show.  I was sad to miss it as I was visiting my parents for the weekend, but I took along Zeke, one of our Cotton Monster staff members (Cotton Monster is a favorite Craft Mafia vendor of mine).  Speaking of which, I was pleased to see this shout-out to Cotton Monster.

- While he was visiting the parents, Zeke and a couple of Museum advisory committee members managed to suss out a pan of my dad's famous "junk squares", so named because they're filled with sugary junk (graham cracker crumbs, shredded coconut, raisins, chocolate chips, almonds, all held together with a can of sweetened condensed milk).


As you can imagine the entire pan was gone within 2 minutes.  They love sweets so!

How was your week?
