Five Friday Favorites:

I just came up with that catchy little title there. Proud of myself! In honor of Friday

(cue Rebecca Black), here is a list of five of my favorite art things in no particular order:

1: Documentary- Born into Brothels:

“Born into Brothels, by Ross Kauffman and Zana Briski, is the winner of the 77th annual Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. A tribute to the resiliency of childhood and the restorative power of art, Born into Brothels is a portrait of several unforgettable children who live in the red light district of Calcutta, where their mothers work as prostitutes. Zana Briski, a New York-based photographer, gives each of the children a camera and teaches them to look at the world with new eyes.” via Read more about it here

“Pulling off the borrowed-from-the-boys trend doesn’t mean sacrificing your femininity.
