Photo Diary: The Van Gogh Gift Shop at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Recently hit the Philadelphia Museum of Art for Zoe Strauss’s Ten Years (check it!) and Van Gogh: Up Close — the latter of which delivered a spectacular gallery devoted to paintings of grass (duuuude) and a gift shop that is part Whole Foods import aisle/part Marseille Provence Airport. In fact, I haven’t seen art merch this sublimely ridiculous since the Frida Kahlo extravaganza at SFMOMA a few years back.

And the pièce de résistance…

…the Starry Night tank dress!!!! Complete with beaded handbag.
