Kurt Cobain Immortalized

Seattle may not be one of the most lust-worthy summer vacay destinations, but it has certainly awakened on our radar with buzz of  the newest exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum.  Kurt Cobain, deceased lead singer of iconic grunge Seattle band Nirvana, is the subject of the aptly named Kurt.   Photographs, paintings, sculptures and more will be displayed from now until early September 2010, bringing to life one of our generations most short-lived yet recognizable rock stars.

We recommend checking it out for yourself, but here’s a glimpse:
