The Invisible Pink Unicorn, birthed on the whim of early Internet users fed up with religion, gained underground ubiquity as a symbol of atheism. LAS Gallery's The Visible Pink Unicorn exhibit plays with the notion of a different type of cult: the ultra-feminine.
Pieces in this collection echo a certain preciousness found in design these days, as well as a reverence for the childlike. We're not gonna lie -- there's a lot of pink on these walls -- but it reminds us of that corner in our old bedroom, where, beneath a poster of My Little Pony, we spent hours in a kind of worshipful state, lost in worlds of our own making.
The exhibit features the work of Melissa McGurgan, Jacqueline Davis, Mindy Meyers, and Amy Reidell.
Wednesdays-Fridays, 12-7 p.m.; Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: Dec. 28. Continues through Feb. 23, 2007

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
