While biking downtown today I ran into Brooks Museum curator. Marina Pacini. She was surveying the installation of some nifty student work inspired by French/Venezuelan pop artist Marisol that's on display in various shop windows along S. Main.

Marisol's "Holy Family" is one of the most striking pieces in the Brooks' permanent collection and Pacini has devoted a lot of time in recent years preparing a retrospective exhibition that opens in Memphis June 14. At a glance, the catalog looks fantastic.

Here are some of the window pieces.
