Welcome to the Dollhouse


Inspired today by Heather Benning's life-size "Dollhouse," an abandoned house turned art installation. The Saskatchewan farmhouse, not occupied since the 1960s, was restored by the artist a few years ago -- she searched high and low for the perfect mid-century furnishings, painted the walls bright colors, and installed plexiglass walls on the outside of the house to protect the interiors. 

How strange would it be to walk through a vast, open field and see, in the distance...a giant dollhouse on the horizon?
