Whitney Matheson, who writes the USA Today Pop Candy blog, introduced me to "Bacon Kevin Bacon." Simply put, it is "a sculpture of actor Kevin Bacon made out of -- you guessed it -- bacon and bacon bits."The sculpture, which was created by artist Mike Lahue, is for sale on eBay.
If you've never seen a copy of John James Audubon's "Birds of America," it is definitely worth the trip to find a place with one on display. It is a massive book 39x26 inches, 435 hand colored prints.He painted them over years, each one lovingly hand crafted.
