Since opening The Last Menagerie shop this summer, I’ve sold several plates as wedding gifts and one set for a baby shower. My kind of people.
The plates remain rare and conceptual art objects that are more than appropriate to mark an array of occasions.
And nothing says FOREVER like extinction.
The Last Menagerie is now available in sets of two and six here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/202189389/extinct-animal-commemorative-plates-set?ref=shop_home_active_2
Last night I attended a Slide Slam (more like a slide excavation) organized by the Library Special Collections at the American Museum of Natural History with talks by the inspiring and thoughtful Mark Dion and Alexis Rockman. Both artists lamented the fact that the majority of the habitats where they had done research expeditions are rapidly disappearing.
The event concluded with a slide giveaway as the museum is downsizing their slide holdings in place of their digital archive. Here are a few beauties from my set. Ah, can’t wait for the magic lantern slide archive to get downsized!
