Since I work for a university, I am always interested in seeing how "university life" is portrayed in popular culture. I recently stumbled on a set of vintage advertisements for 1964's Barbie on Campus line.
You get a chance to see Barbie's dorm room-that looks nothing like today's dorm room, but I really appreciate the matching decor and lack of a TV, Wii or docking station of any kind.
You can see where barbie will spend her time. Please note the lack of any academic pursuits.
And you can see what Barbie and Ken will be wearing. I especially enjoy the masquerade outfits that would be the hit of any greek event.
Yayoi Kusama has a retrospective exhibit at theWhitney Museum. New York is the last stop of this traveling exhibit. It was previously shown in Madrid, Paris and London. It features 60 years of her work and will be on display until September 30.
Since the exhibition is sponsored by Loius Vuitton, Yayoi Kusama has transformed the Louis Vuitton store on Fifth Avenue in New York City.
Inside the store, a special section is devoted to the collection featuring classic Louis Vuitton bags and shoes washed in Kusama’s dots.
Louis Vuitton also collaborated with artist Takashi Murakami
