Folk Art Environments
What do you get when you combine Folk Art and an entire house or area to play with? You get obsession on display and a fascinating, created world. You may have heard of the Watts towers
or the Bottle Village
, but have you seen Le Palais Ideal de le Facteur Cheval
(in France) or Nek Chand
(in India) or the Whirligig Ranch
or the Forevertron
or the Ave Maria Grotto
? If you share Jane's Addiction
you may want to consult her directory
next time you travel.
Perry Farrell helps free sudanese slaves.
Yes, the same Perry Farrell from Jane's Addiction. apparently he risked getting shot down by militia forces to rescue 2,300 women and children from slavery. wow.
