Peace Out: Dallas ISD Kiddos Decorate NorthPark Barney's For Christmas
Earlier today our downstairs neighbors at Big Thought sent the image above, which you've no doubt seen if you've window-shopped at NorthPark Center during this most wonderful (enh) time of the year. It's the storefront at Barney's New York, where the theme's "Have a Hippie Holiday," which, I'll assume, involves listening to American Beauty while stoned and unshowered. Says the accompanying release: "The famed Peace symbol, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2008, has been amazingly interpreted by fourth- and fifth-graders from Dallas ISD's Anne Frank Elementary School," and it was done "using acrylic paints on a 12"x12" stretched canvas." So, right, dig it. --Robert Wilonsky
