The figures that form the massively scaled "living paintings" at the annual Pageant of the Masters may have strict instructions not to move a muscle, or even let a single hair fall, but we most certainly do not.
Because here's the haps: Pageant of the Masters opens on July 7. It runs through August 31. And already, certain ticket types are gone. And not just for one night, but for every night in that ticket class.
And here's the other haps: Now that the Sawdust Art Festival has very recently opened, we suspect tickets'll get moving at a jauntier pace, seeing as how the Pageant is just a pip down the road from the huge clutch of shops that make up the Sawdust.
People, posing, as still as they can, in famous and/or interesting works of art. You've known about it for years. You've seen it parodied on "Arrested Development." But have you gone? Go in 2010, and start here.
