Janis Joplin’s Pants

Art Seen

janis’ pants

The 1968 exhibition at the Oakland Museum is pretty kitschy, very Hollywood, a spectacle. It wasn’t what I expected. No real analysis, an everyman show, I guess. But here are some pictures of what I took away from it and a sketch from my art journal. It is amazing to see these pants, realize how small they are and wonder what was Janis bawling about being fat for??? (Okay, okay, so she was a little overweight later on. Big deal!)
