this past weekend jeremy and i went to the milwaukee art museum and saw two new exihibits (and as a side note, we also become members of MAM. it's really a good local museum). one of them was the Scholastic Art Awards: 2010 Wisconsin Regional Exhibition. the show is a collection of art from kids ranging from the grades of 7-12 in categories of architecture, ceramics & glass, comic art, design, digital art, drawing, fashion, film & animation, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video games. jeremy's cousin had a dress that she made that had won a gold key in the competion which means that she will go on to the national level. while we were looking at all the other works of art, there was a coat that i fell in love with on display there. honestly i don't remember if it won a silver or gold key or who made it but, i was totally in love. the cool thing about this coat was that it had poetry written along with the design on the coat. you can't read the poetry in the pictures but i still thought i would share the coat with everyone. it's amazing! it's made out of felt, if it was just made out of wool, i would totally buy it and wear it! i love when fashion and poetry intertwine with each other! just goes to show that fashion isn't this frivolous thing and that poetry can be cool and in style (no pun intended, well maybe). so here are the pictures of the awesome coat!
