A Visit to Art in Hats

This is a short update to my earlier announcement of the Art in Hats diabetes benefit exhibit and sale.  I visited the event, and you NEVER saw so many whimsical, lovely, bizarre, far-out HATS!  Even if you never wear hats in Second Life, it's worth going just to walk around and marvel at the things that designers think we want to put on our heads.  Some of those designers must be, I think, twisted indeed, but others are obviously Artists of great skill and imagination.

The event is set up so that you can buy either the hat itself, or a piece of accompanying artwork that showcases the hat.  Or you can buy both!  That's why the full name of the event is "Art in Hats - Hats in Art."

If you do buy some hats, and are having trouble getting them fitted with your hair, here's a tutorial that may be of help:  http://acrossthegridwithlindal.blogspot.com/2011/06/hats-off.html

Here are a few pictures I took, but they're only the tip of the iceberg.  DO visit this extraordinary event!

Feathers!

Flowers!

Warhol!
