In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Seattle's Worlds Fair, Bumbershoot is paying a special tribute to Elvis Presley, star of the film It Happened at the World's Fair, rider of the monorail, and eater of peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Elvistravaganza features a bunch of pieces by different artists, all sharing their own special interpretation of the King and/or his legacy. There's a lot of good/funny/smart/weird stuff to be seen. Here are a just a few of my favorites (which look much better in person).
