MY DAD'S HATS
1931 - 2015
"Aloha. The powers that be gave me the 'paper-bag hat
assignment.' This photo essay, "CROWNING GLORY,"
a collection of 255 paper-bag hats, is for your viewing
My dad's name was moses. He was an incredible artist and will be
missed by many. Here is what happened when he got his hands
on some paper bags in Hawaii...
These exquisite paper sculptures were featured in the July, 2000, issue
of the Smithsonian Magazine, and are in the permanent collection
of the Mingei International Museum, in San Diego, CA.
