ART: Love it. Live it.

Dear Chelsi, I'm updating just for you.

I love the ARTS. I love music, photography, performing arts, films, literature, and a very select few visual arts (Abstract art is NOT my favorite. I just don't understand it.). Photography is under the visual arts category normally, but I like to think of it in its own little category.

This week I was able to attend the awesome Sketch to Screen: The Art of Hollywood Costume Design at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. This was probably one of my favorite exhibits that have come to the Oklahoma City Museum. There were so many different costumes from the early 1920's to present day worn by some of Hollywoods brightest stars, including...

The beautiful and talented Audrey Hepburn. This costume is from Funny Face and was featured at the exhibit. 

 Original costumes from the Super Man himself. 

My all time favorite costume shown at the museum was from the 1986 film Three Amigos. Steve Martin's costume was the only one on stand. 


Like I said above there were so many awesome costumes at the OKCMOA, I would encourage all of you to visit it before they are all gone, which is August 15th, 2010. I would also encourage you to support the OKCMOA by visiting often or even becoming a member. 

Pictures from the day at the museum:

Have a great week, go get your Art on! 



  1. 1. 3 amigos is my all time favorite movie! for the past 24 years of my life, every time my parents decide to call the kids together for a "family night"... thats what we watch. seriously. my husband got so sick of watching that movie after the third time that he actually suggested another one for the next movie night! needless to say, we watched 3 amigos again.

    2. i am SOOOO glad you blogged about this! cause i completely forgot about the fact that i wanted stephen to take me so bad to see all the cool costumes!

  2. Keisha, I really hope this works, 3rd times the charm, right? I love your post ps. I'm jealous that you got to see one of the 3 amigos costumes *sigh* AND I love the pic of you and Meagan, I miss you girls!
