BARBARA BLOOM’s A Birthday Party for Everything includes the essential ingredients for a picture-perfect party in a convenient carrying case.
No occasion would be complete without party hats and horns, plates, cups, napkins, and favors including puzzles, frisbees, wooden tops, yo-yos, kaleidoscopes, pinwheels, fans, bubbles, candy, and balloons. The artist makes this party her own and ours by festooning each surface with images ranging from the sub-atomic to the universal, from molecular structures to bodily systems to street maps to cityscapes to world views to the moon.
A Birthday Party for Everything is quite simply a celebration of life.
A Birthday Party for Everything can be found in the collections of the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago; Colorado University Art Museum, Boulder; Cooper-Hewitt Museum, NYC; Museum of Modern Art, NYC; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
