I first heard of Robin Barkus Slonina in 2007 when I saw her mini documentary on her Wyoming Dress. I thought it was beautiful and wildly creative. The photo reminded me of Ophelia from Othello. I love this kind of site specific art work, much more than Christo type huge installations that seem to distract rather than bring in. I think her art work is cheeky and fun and offers a bit of color to an ordinary day. Check her blog out here. Near as I can tell she hasn’t posted in a long while. But, it’s still fun to look around her blog and website. My favorite is this one the Illinois Red Dress for obvious reasons. I couldn’t find out exactly how many State Dresses she has completed. Does anyone know?
