art and war
A beautiful press release just landed in our inbox stating that the redoubtable Los Angeles-birthed ice cream truck Coolhaus will be serving its mix-and-match ice-cream sandwiches and hot chocolate to visitors at the Flag Art Foundation on Saturday, March 10, from 2 to 4 p.m.
Two weeks ago, The Observer was in a van full of journalists heading back from an exhibition in Connecticut. Outside, the fall foliage was in full color; death, in other words, was everywhere, hanging around resplendent on a clear and unseasonably balmy day, in toniest Connecticut, et in arcadia ego. One of the journalists peered out the window at the leaves, and remarked, of the snowstorm that had hit the East Coast a week before, that it takes just one frost to kill the things. After the frost, they know to die, and change color.
