The Baltimore Museum of Art was a mob scene with some 1,000 fans inundating the place to get first peek at “John Waters: Indecent Exposure.”
Folks stood patiently in line…
…to check out 120 artworks created by Baltimore’s iconic filmmaker/artist/writer/performer…
…and continue to be shocked, delighted, amused and nonplussed by his perspective and wit.
Then, it was time to party in the museum’s atrium, possibly mingling with the artist himself…
…several fans paying homage to their idol in how they had artistically decorated themselves.
