Cabinet of Curiosities by Patrick Mauries

“Bound to entertain anyone who is intellectually curious and sure to serve as a source of inspiration for interior decorators and contemporary artists. Antiques and the Arts, Unicorns horns, mermaid skeletons, stuffed and preserved animals and plants, work in precious metals, clocks, scientific instruments, celestial globes . . . all knowledge, the whole cosmos arranged on shelves.” Such were the cabinets of curiosities of the seventeenth century.

Women Artists in the Nationalgalerie before 1919


Alte Nationalgalerie

Berlin, 11.10.2019 to 08.03.2020

“The exhibition and accompanying scholarly publication provide the first extensive study dedicated to all the works in the Nationalgalerie produced by women painters and sculptors before 1919. It is a revision of the museum’s collections viewed under the important aspect of current discourse about equal rights.”

Let’s hope this starts a trend.

Bob Baker Marionette Theater

The Bob Baker Marionette Theater opened its doors in Los Angeles in 1963, founded by the masterful puppetry partnership of Alton Wood and Bob Baker. The traveling troupe had been operating globally for several decades before renovating the rundown theater space in downtown LA, which has become a local cultural institution ever since.

Reusable straws.

Apparently Americans use approximately 500 million straws a day. Time to get some cool reusable straws instead.

Not a man made sculpture, this is pyrite, created by Mother Nature.
