If you are a fan of wearable art, then you will want to know about this partnering of the Edie Parker acrylic clutch bag brand with legendary visual artist, Marilyn Minter, in the form of two stunning collectible hand bags

The Jean clutch handbag (in white pearlescent with silver kiss-lock hardware closure) features the artist’s Glitter Mouth, while the Carol clutch (in nude pearlescent with gold kiss-lock hardware closure) features Minter’s Wet Kiss — two surreal and sexy artworks by the celebrated artist.

Each clutch features an interior mirror etched with Minter’s signature and the Edie Parker logo, and is designed to carry a smartphone (including iPhone Plus models) and other evening essentials. A radical fashion statement, the handbags pay tasteful homage to Minter’s decades-long career spanning painting, photography, film, and powerful activism.

These limited-edition clutch bags have been created to commemorate the Brooklyn Museum’s 2017 exhibition Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty and, for a limited time, are being sold exclusively through the Museum Shop for $1,495, each, with a significant discount for museum members.
