Out the Gift Shop into the Gallery!

We are honored to be part of Racine Art Museums current show Art of the Cup: Variations on cups from RAM’s Collection.

Now the Baby Head Cups© has been a staple of the museum gift shop for decades. We are currently featured at the Tacoma Art Museum, the Seattle Art Museum we even had representation at the Guggenheim’s gift shop in NYC. Up until now we have only been affiliated with the retail component of these cultural juggernauts. Art of the Cup as presented by the Racine Art Museum is the first instance of a Baby Head Cup piercing the “Fine Art” barrier by being included in a formal gallery show.

Persistence pays off. I am flattered to have been curated into Art of the Cup, and I am joined by some very talented people in this show. Should you find yourself in Wisconsin this spring swing by Racine and treat yourself to this excellent collection of American crafts. -Oliver Doriss
