Jason Wu, Honorary Washingtonian... Baby Buggy Summer Dinner Moves...

Jason Wu, he of the multiple MObama credits, visited Washington, D.C., this weekend for two days of events.

JUNK YARD DOG: A junk shop will appear Wednesday in a display window of Neiman Marcus’ Dallas flagship courtesy of Houston artist Bill Davenport, who describes the work as “sort of an ideal, super-thrift store full of all the things I would die to find if it were all collected in one place.” Davenport’s window will feature wasps’ nests, country-music fan art, dolls, yarn, bent wires, cork bark, Japanese Catholic paintings,” mystery objects” and more. It’s one of seven windows by contemporary artists making their debut in conjunction with the Dallas Art Fair, which runs April 8 to 10 at Fashion Industry Gallery. Neiman’s has sponsored the art fair since it was founded three years ago by FIG owner John Sughrue and art consultant Chris Byrne. “We thought this would be a nice tie-in,” Byrne explained. “Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg had all done windows in their careers, so we knew there was this great connection to that, and Neiman’s flagship store is so Dallas.” Selected by regional art experts, featured artists include Wunderkammer of Webb Gallery in Waxahachie, Texas, which is assembling a “cabinet of curiosities,” and Richard Patterson, who plans to install a video of “science fiction existential pain.”
