Old Barbies Become Art | Dolls Recycled Into Masterpieces

No matter what side of the fence you sit on when it comes to the great Barbie debate (is she merely a childhood doll or is she the unattainable female protégé); nearly every person of every age can appreciate this new approach to Barbie as a form of art.

Barbie made a new debut at a recent Altered Barbie recycled art show that took place in San Francisco.

Through the incorporation of Barbie into a recycled art object, the unique show celebrated the diversity of viewpoints surrounding the controversial doll, including personal image awareness and stereotypical gender rolls in society.

More glimpses from the show are going to be posted weekly at on

    sep14Salvarezh Hasta cuando se siguen haciendo las cosas con tan poca seriedad ? Toda propuesta se debe consultar a las bases, se debe votar de verdad y discutir en asamblea. Que clase de sindicato es este? Despabilense dirigentes y hagan las cosas en serio por una vez. Soliciten mas tiempo para responder y realicen una asamblea de verdad no con votos truchos o tienen miedo que en esa asamblea los socios les den un PLR?

    love this! i went vegan about a year and a bit ago and have never felt so healthy. lately i haven't been as strict-but it is SO easy (AND HEALTHY) to eliminate those things from your diet and the substitutions are easy, obtainable and affordable (for most of us). i think now more than ever we need to educate ourselves and each other about what we are putting in our bodies, and how severe those impacts actually are. i love talking about this kind of thing so i am excited to see what you bring to the table. yay!

    I swear I’ve used a tanker truck of bleach, and nearly as much hand sanitizer, but so far, Hubby and I are still ok, knock on wood. And the boys finally all seem to be over it. No more symptoms in the past 24 hours! The 3 yo was horrified he’d messed his pants, then to have to wear a pull-up, so he’s very relieved. The 10mo got it first, and his diaper rash from it is healed up finally and the 2yo is back on track with potty training.Thanks so much for the cookies and confetti!Kenra Daniels recently posted..

However, since friendship is important to girls, it may be more important to keep the friendship than be less depressed about their problems.
