This is one of my favorite photos from my Santa Fe trip. It's from the Brasil and Arte Popular exhibit at the Museum of International Folk Art. It's a bear costume for Carnival. There was some information about how the bear is part of the celebration, and why. I think a fairy tale is involved. Now I can't remember what the deal is and my 5-second internet search gave me nothing. But I know there is a story behind it.

The whole family is riveted by these series of short animated videos teaching art history basics by Ydraw over at Khan Academy. They are drawn while they are narrated, which is mesmerizing, and are full of great information. And they are funny.
