i've always had a fascination with the 99-cent store. it amazies me what can cost just 99 cents. a 99-cent garden gnome i get, but a pregnancy test?! yes, seriously! (Jaime, back me up here.)
what about 99-cent art? it exists in the latest outdoor installation at LACMA.
this dazzling display is titled "HappyHappy" by Choi Jeong-Hwa. Each and every colorful bin, strainer, basket, funnel and pitcher was purchased at the nearby 99-Cent Only Store. A-mazing!
please visit and walk through this visual playground. it'll bring a smile to your face and the artist's. Jeong-Hwa's mantra is "Your heart is my art."
