“Orange is the happiest color,” Frank Sinatra said of his favorite hue, which showed up in his clothes and his houses. Sinatra bought a modest house at the Tamarisk Country Club in Rancho Mirage in the mid-1950s and lived there until May 1995. A caboose, a gift from some of his employees in 1971, became the compound’s full-service salon, complete with barber’s chair, a professional hair dryer, a massage table, a scale and a sauna, at rear. via Architectural Digest
Yoko Ono: Freight Train This work consists of an actual freight train with a locked door, riddled with bullet holes. Inside the freight train, there is a very strong light source sending beams of white light out of all the bullet holes and from a singular large hole in the roof. The concept of Freight Train comes from a specific instance of human brutality. Several years ago, a group of Mexican workers attempting to enter the United States, were locked inside a freight train for the crossing, and perished when the transporters abandoned the train in the American desert. This single incident inspired the artist to create an artwork expressing resistance, healing, and hope for the next century. (Boxcar with light and sound exhibited Germany, Japan, USA)
