Zoe Strauss At The Opening of Her Photo Exhibit at the Phila. Museum of Art

It is no accident that the woman in the background is laughing. The opening was rip roaring fun.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art rocked last night during the opening of Zoe Strauss's gripping photo exhibit. More than 2000 people came to gape, gawk, and dance the night away. It was totally meta to take pictures of a photographer at her opening. My favorite pictures were "Alzheimer's," "Daddy Tattoo, a portrait of an Amy Winehouse lookalike, and "Tattooed Penises". Alfred said it was "touching" to see his picture in an art museum.

In another totally meta picture, this is the Honickmans of Pepsi Cola Bottling in the gallery named after them. They also were kind enough to provide free soda and water for the thirsty partiers.
