Lady Slippers part 1
The Lusty Lady died last month. I won't go into the morality show or the "it's a living" diatribe. I will say that the place is attached to a good memory of mine.
The photo is of the sidewalk mourning installation, across from SAM. The Kurt Cobain show inside the museum was all served up proper-like for commercial collections. It is funny how time and death creates that "other cultural acceptance" that the live artists rarely see. Anyway across from SAM the art was displayed publicly and on concrete. (street pop up art)
As for the LL, the first big wedding I did as Zootsuit was for a couple with connections to the Lusty Lady. I did 8 or so bridesmaid dresses and some of those maids were Ladies.
