Just a quick Friday note: A story in the Register-Guard describes the wonderfully zany dress, made of playing cards — and all hearts, at that — by University of Oregon psychology prof Marjorie Taylor, who is showing it for Valentine’s Day at the downtown boutique she and her daughter Amber own, Velvet Edge.
Josephine Woolington’s excellent story omits one interesting connection — that Taylor is married to UO economics prof and good-government advocate Bill Harbaugh, who daily afflicts the UO’s exceedingly comfortable administration on his award-winning blog UO Matters.
The photo above shows the dress, made from thousands of used Vegas playing cards, at Taylor and Harbaugh’s home last month.
What a power couple Taylor and Harbaugh make: Art and journalism. My two favorite things you can do in public.
