Silhouettes at Pink Olive

There was a time (perhaps from the late 1970's to the early 1980's) when everyone had a framed silhouette of their kids in their living room. Now, of course, in a world of smart phones, laptops, tablets and digital cameras, the art of creating silhouettes from paper is nearly lost (unless there is a app for that).

Enter: Karl Johnson. Karl is a master silhouette artist, traveling the world cutting silhouettes of all shapes and sizes, and in just minutes (and using only a pair of scissors). Amazingly, Karl has limited vision (he can only see from his right eye), which allows him to see and judge the world in a vastly different way than most people. This ability lends itself perfectly to cutting silhouettes, which Karl has been doing since he was ten years old.

On Saturday September 10th, Fifth Avenue's Pink Olive will host Karl from 11am to 3pm. Children and adults of all ages are welcome! Come down and get a silhouette done in just 5 minutes!

Check out the invitation and spread the word!
