Cooper, the Lois F. and Henry S. McNeil Senior Curator of Furniture, and Lisa Minardi, Assistant Curator of Furniture for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Furniture Project, about the exhibition.” (Skinner).

02. Doc Webb – San Diego

“It’s easy to romanticize the ‘old days’ of American tattoo shop culture when you hear guys like Doc Webb talking about it. Before it was a ‘gallery’ it was a parlor and if your tattooer had an artschool background he kept it to himself. Even when he’s talking about the Sailors being drunks and raisin’ hell he’s got a smile on his face.” (Occult Vibrations).

03. Exhibition: ‘Architecture in Uniform: Designing and Building for the Second World War’ (Above)

“The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) presents the major exhibition Architecture in Uniform: Designing and Building for the Second World War. On view from 13 April until 18 September 2011, the exhibition investigates the consequences of the Second World War on the built environment and reveals the immense development undertaken and responsibility carried by architecture during these years. Until now, few studies have analyzed the breadth of research, innovation, and building conducted by architects during the war years.” (Arch Daily).
