KANSAS CITY LIPSTICK ART?!?!
Quick look at the Kansas City art scene to start the day . . .
Check city college grad Christina Silvius offering today's Midtown inspiration with this performance piece . . .
“Give” is an object based, endurance piece in which I stood beneath a metal frame that held 6 vertical open lipstick containers. The lipsticks hung at various heights to which I was able to stretch and reach from the tips of my toes. Underneath the structure I repeated the action of sampling, applying, and selecting a lipstick using only my mouth. The performance ends once I had chosen a lipstick and my body reached its physical limit.

Is it art??? You decide . . .
