A chaotic assortment of artists tumbles forth in the first half of this video diary, and the pieces of flotsam and jetsam coalesce into the junk statuary of Jerry Barrish, sculptor. Then the piece drifts down to Baltimore where my brother, Mike, and I are invited to the premire of Divine Trash, a documentary on John Waters that is being screened in an old and historic theater prowled by the media and folks in evening attire (evening-out attire). From there we join Divine's mom as she views a construction in honor of her famous son that is going up for display in a visionary art museum. A record of a gala event in full swing, plus the heartbreak and heartburn of those attending!
