Whacky Wedding

Couples marry and move into a new home.  The Museum of Arts and Design moved into a new home and displayed a couple things to remind us of weddings.  MAD opened its new doors at Columbus Circle yesterday with three key shows: Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary (which includes Susie MacMurray's amazing wedding gown made of 1400 rubber gloves (no need to worry about spills!), below); Elegant Armor: The Art of Jewelry (which includes Ruth Radakovich's wild, incredible sea urchin cocktail ring from 1969 (no need to grab a weapon if hubby cheats!) as well as its permanent collection.

P.S. Speaking of nutty nuptials, Porter's been just giddy with excitement since the lovely Joanna Goddard posted her 2005 wedding project on Glamor's new SMITTEN blog!

  1. ruth radakovich's work is genius. her career was much too short...she was only 53 when she passed away in the mid-seventies. radakovich's work in bronze was very, very influential. really excited about elegant armor!

    ps love porter hovey's series : ) hysterical and spot on!
