Mardi Gras Indian (member of Monogram Hunters tribe) at St. Joseph's Night parade in New Orleans
Art and design do not intersect enough with the law for my taste. Hence, I thought this NY Times article (provided to me by my friend/former boss (!) at New Orleans Museum of Art) was fascinating.
It begs the question....can clothing be copyrighted? And, further, is haute couture or costume really "just clothes"?
Personally, this article really struck home for me because my very first "I'm an adult" artwork purchase features none other than a Mardi Gras Indian. It is possibly the most ethereal and painterly photograph I have ever seen.
