Arbus exhibit closing

You never know how people are going to surf over to your site. For whatever reason, my recent entry about the Diane Arbus photograph depicting "a young waitress at a nudist camp" seems to have reached the first page of results on Google. Well, as far as I can tell, you can't view this work of art online, so if you'd like to see it, hurry over to the Metropolitan Museum of Art before the exhibit closes tomorrow (May 30).

However, since I'm on the topic, here's another article -- from the Washington Post -- about the now-grown-up subjects of Arbus' famous works. And here are some homages/parodies of the boy in the park with the twisted face and the grenade in his hand: the original, as a plastic toy, as graffiti, and as a monkey.
