Feral cat taxidermied hat at Sept. 11th West Loop gallery openings

While I was out at the mess of art openings that my friend Liz Nielsen of Swimming Pool Project Space calls "the block party," I talked to artists, writers, curators and the like.The girl with the feral cat taxidermied hat was, by far, the weirdest person I found.


Girl wearing a custom-made hat made from the fur of a feral cat. Yep, she skinned it herself.

And here's a little video of her with the cat hat in action, along with three other ladies I met while gallery hopping. In the first video, I talk to Lea Schleiffenbaum and Magalie Guerin; in the second, I talk to Dutch exchange student Nora Halpern. Forgive the shoddy quality, friends--I was shooting on my Blackberry. Now I know better.
