Cashin's Graffiti Wall
Above, designer Bonnie Cashin's "graffiti wall" circa 1962.
I posted this image last summer, but lately Megan, of Beach Bungalow 8, has been writing about graffiti art and I was inspired to share it again. Apparently in all of her homes Bonnie Cashin created a wall like this to display quotes from her favorite intellectual heroes, such as Einstein, Ghandi, and Picasso. Personally, I'm drawn to the graphic blocks of color that highlight the quotes.
In case you're not familiar with her, Cashin was a fashion designer best known for her accessories for Coach in the 1960s. There is a nice online exhibition of her work, "Chic is Where You Find It" on the UCLA Library website. Another interesting source is the Bonnie Cashin Foundation.
