A John Waters Christmas and the Baltimore Museum of Art

by Chris Murray on December 18, 2018

Tomorrow evening, John Waters performs his hilarious and lively Christmas stand-up show at The Birchmere in Alexandria, VA. I’ve seen the show the last several years; it’s wild and I love it.

John is also enjoying a remarkable exhibition at the Baltimore Museum of Art, John Waters: Indecent Exposure. The exhibition is a wonderful opportunity to see the range of John’s work.

The Baltimore Museum of Art describes the exhibition: “The first retrospective of John Waters’s visual arts career in his hometown of Baltimore presents more than 160 provocative photographs, sculptures, and video and sound works. The exhibition concludes with a gallery devoted to ephemera, including objects from Waters’s home and studio that inspire him, and three peep-shows featuring footage from his rarely seen underground movies of the 1960s.”

    This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!)
    Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
