new spoleto poster
i can't sop laughing everytime i think of this poster. no disrespect to the artist, maya lin, she is a force unto her own. but this poster cracks me up. i know where she got her inspiration. that will make you laugh as hard as me.(huh uh, i said hard, uh huh) that is the funny part. the sad part is spoleto festival usa is part sponsor of the halsey institute of contemporary arts' show during spoleto, "Call and Response: Africa to America, The art of Nick Cave and Phyllis Galembo". The opportunity to capitalize on these amazing artists work was missed. word on the street is nick cave offered to make one of his amazing sound suits specifically for the poster. think about how much fun the windows of king street would have been with that as the basis for the merchants! not to mention the amount of people exposed to this one of a kind art show. instead, once again we are left to look at a spread from an atlas with holes in it. nice holes, i must say.(huh uh, i said holes, uh huh). i think caitlin upton says it best"...because some people out there in our nation don't have maps..." hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
