Is there a tiki art show going on now?




Uh..... did you not see the 2008 mentioned twice in the sentence you quoted above? Back away from the bong.

GROG see your confusion now. The Tiki Art show would START in August 2008, but it would end in January 2009. Sorry about that. You can go back to your bong.

Maybe I'll be buried there.
I probably couldn't afford it, so I'll have Bamboo Ben slip me in when he's building one of his famous Bamboo Ben crypts.

My father is buried in Forest Lawn -- a location picked by my aunt who lives nearby. It is almost offensively neat and fussy with little "houses of worship" dotted here and there. In my father's case, his send-off was conducted in the hallowed sanctuary of The Wee Kirk O'the Heather (not far from downtown L.A.)

La Verandah vividly remembers have to take the place of an ailing male poll bearer. We all rather struggled over the sloping hillside with the casket toward the plot because her spike heels kept sinking into the deeply watered grass and she'd have to stop and pull 'em out time and again.

The moral being: When attending a funeral, always wear flats because you never know.

For those who are not on Otto's email list:

WHAT: The "In Search of Tiki" art exhibit
WHEN: Friday, August 8, 2008, through Sunday, January 4, 2009
WHERE: Forest Lawn Museum at Forest
Lawn-Glendale, 1712 S. Glendale Avenue, Glendale,
CA 91205. For more information, please call
1-800-204-3131, or log on to
www.forestlawn.com
HOW MUCH: Admission is free.

"In Search of Tiki," a fascinating juxtaposition
between the old and the new, between the
traditional Oceanic art made by the native
peoples of the Pacific Islands and the entire
gamut of second-generation Pan-Polynesian
artifacts that embellished restaurants and bars
from the 1940s through the mid-1970s. The
exhibit will also feature inventive
interpretations by a new group of artists who are
pushing the boundaries of Tiki Style and creating
objects that have little or no basis in
Polynesian arts.

"In Search of Tiki," which embodies the Forest
Lawn Museum's goal to enrich, inspire and educate
the community, will display traditional Oceanic
Tikis, featuring Polynesian, Micronesian, and
Melanesian figurative carvings and photography of
Tiki archeology in their original settings; Tiki
Americana, featuring 20th century American
carvings and paintings in the spirit of the
romantic South Seas; and current 21st century
tiki artists, such as Josh Agle (better known as
"Shag"), Mark Ryden, Anthony Ausgang, Art Katz,
Atomikitty, R.K. Sloane, and more. Authors
Douglas Nason and Jeff Fox will serve as guest
curators for the exhibit. Major contributors to
"In Search of Tiki," are Oceanic Arts Tropical
D?cor in Whittier, California, and the Marc and
Alice Davis Collection.

About the Forest Lawn Museum
The Forest Lawn Museum was founded in
1951 with a vision of bringing a wide variety of
artwork to the community through both its
permanent collection and traveling exhibits.

I recently ran across the story of "Henry," an authentic Moai head from Easter Island that is on display at the Forest Lawn Cemetery Museum in Glendale, CA. I searched for a mention of it in previous threads but found nothing. I was wondering if anybody had been to see Henry or knew more about him. Here's a link to Forest Lawn's site with a picture of Henry in the bottom right hand corner:

http://www.forestlawn.com/visitors_guide/museum.asp

I've got to go check this out. If nobody else knows about this and it's been off the radar, it definitely deserves some attention. As far as I know, Henry is the only authentic Moai on display in California.






It may be, as the LA Natural History Museum sent theirs to a museum in New York.

Now, I know this one is authentic Rapa Nui.
