Product Description


Brought to You by The Unemployed Philosophers Guild

The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)

Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.

More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.


Frida Kahlo Exhibit From NYC Headed for Tucson - ABC News

, an employee of the Tucson Botanical Gardens plants marigolds for the upcoming exhibit “Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life” is shown under construction. The exhibit, which broke attendance records in New York City during its six-month run there last year, will debut in Tucson on Oct. The blockbuster Frida Kahlo exhibit in New York City that attracted the likes of even Beyonc. "Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life" broke attendance records at the New York Botanical Garden during its six-month run last year, attracting over 500,000 visitors. The large exhibit will debut in Arizona on Oct. 10 at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. "To me it's transformative and it's a way for us to connect people in a whole new way," executive director Michelle Conklin said. "We don't know what to expect but I do know in New York they hit all attendance records in their 150-year history. So we know we're gonna break all of our attendance records in our 40-year history. The Mexican artist, long revered as one of the most influential painters in Latin America , has gained wide popularity in pop culture in the past several years. dressed up as her one Halloween and last year posted pictures on social media of herself and her family touring the New York City. The garden exhibit is a replica of Kahlo's own creation in Casa Azul, her home in Coyoac. The Tucson Botanical Gardens will host poetry walks, lectures and native plant tours during the exhibit's expected eight-month run. The garden's cafe, which is open daily, will feature dishes inspired by Kahlo's personal cookbook. Conklin said the exhibit came to fruition through connections with the American Public Gardens Association, of which she is a member. A colleague helped facilitate the exhibit's tour in Tucson, and Conklin attended the New York exhibit last year and picked out which items would be on display in Tucson. Only the original paintings and some historical items from the New York show will not make it to Tucson because there wasn't enough space. Transporting the exhibit was a challenge on its own, but the Tucson gardens also struggled with compressing what was spread out over 150 acres in New York to its 5-acre facility. Conklin said the exhibit's designer, the Tony Award-winning stage designer Scott Pask, devoted a lot of time to helping set up the Tucson exhibit. Mexican Consul Ricardo Pineda has also been working with the gardens and said the exhibit is a great way to get people to notice Tucson as a cultural attraction. Source: abcnews.go.com

    Behind Frida Kahlo’s portraits, lies the story of both her life and work. It is precisely this combination that draws the reader in. Frida’s work is a record of her life, and rarely can we learn so much about an artist from what she records inside the picture frame. Frida Kahlo truly is Mexico’s gift to the history of art. She was just eighteen years old when a terrible bus accident changed her life forever, leaving her handicapped and burdened with constant physical pain. But her explosive character, raw determination and hard work helped to shape her artistic talent. And although he was an obsessive womanizer, the great painter Diego Rivera was by her side. She won him over with her charm, talent and intelligence, and Kahlo learnt to lean on the success of her companion in order to explore the world, thus creating her own legacy whilst finding herself surrounded by a close-knit group of friends. Her personal life was turbulent, as she frequently left her relationship with Diego to one side whilst she cultivated her own bisexual relationships. Despite this, Frida and Diego managed to save their frayed relationship. The story and the paintings that Frida left us display a courageous account of a woman constantly on a search of self discovery.
