Pink Thing of The Day: Nancy Pelosi Acton Figure in Pink Dress

nancy pelosi action figure pink

The folks at FCTRY, who’ve been turning cultural and political icons into action figures since 2008, are adding a gorgeous Nancy Pelosi Acton Figure to their already impressive line of progressive heroes that includes RBG, Biden, AOCSanders and Hillary (which I own) among many others. Nancy is seen here rocking a hot Pink Dress (earning her the honor of being a Pink Thing of The Day), accessorized  with sensible white pumps, while she carries a white gavel in one hand, and Dump’s hideous wig in another (though I believe that is just a photo prop)! Nancy’s incredible likeness was sculpted by Seattle-based artist Michael Leavitt, whose work you have seen on the blog many times. He is so talented! While FCTRY prepares Nancy’s Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for her series, you can help spread the word about this project and possibly earn a free action figure. To find out how to get a free Nancy Pelosi Action Figure, please click Here, then scroll down to the Quid Pro Quo section. Can’t wait to own this lovely and powerful lady!

Randy Polumbo’s Love Stream installation was a last minute addition to this week’s art crawl thanks exclusively to an enticing blurb in the weekend edition of Daily Candy. So, props to Daily Candy for turning us on to a thoroughly squeal-inducing exhibit! Seriously you’ve gotta check this one out!

In Polumbo’s most ambitious and monumental work to date, the artist has transformed a vintage Airstream aluminum trailer into a stimulating experiential wonderland that is both part amusement park attraction and part Freudian intervention.

It’s Me! In the Love Stream!

Surprisingly, there was not much of a wait to explore the interior of the Love Stream, decked out as it is like Warhol’s Factory in silver upholstered cushions! We want to live in it!

Love Stream Wall Flower Fixture By Randy Polumbo

Also part of the exhibit are a series of hand-blown crystal Udder formations (we do not have any photos of those, but they are pretty cool) and techno-organic Wallflowers of glass and aluminum that are illuminated with LEDs to create a bioluminescent frenzy on the gallery walls. Bioluminescence!

Love Stream Standing Flower Fixture By Randy Polumbo

Polumbo combines glass and innovative lighting to create environments that speak to our world of pleasure and sensuality. He invites viewers to immerse themselves in an exotic and lurid Garden of Eden blooming with voluptuous hand-blown glass flora sprouting from every surface. As subtly hinted at by the detail on this  sculpture, seen below, Polumbo has previously created art with repurposed sex toys, and his work is also on exhibit at NYC’s Museum Of Sex. We recommend a visit there as well.

Andy Warhol Monument in Union Square


The Andy Monument by Rob Pruitt (Photograph By James Ewing)

Rob Pruitt’s really awesome Andy Warhol Monument statue has been up at the intersection of 17th Street and Broadway since March of this year. The statue stands just a few yards from one of two former addresses of Warhol’s (in)famous Factory Studio. During the time I’ve lived in NYC (23 or so years) that same location has housed two nightclubs (Area and the short-lived Palace De Beaute), a porn shop and a Petco, which is what it is now. You can visit the statue, and marvel at its shininess, until they take it down on October 2, 2011.
