Pink Flamingo’s, A Brief Insight Into This Symbol Of American Pop Culture
The Pink Flamingo, Created by Don Featherstone in 1957 sold for $2.76 a pair and were an immediate hit with the working class who used them to identify their post-World War II cookie cutter homes from their neighbors. Labeled as “tacky” they were eschewed by the upper class, destined to years of ridicule but loved by the masses.
the 1960’s saw a fall from grace for the Paragon in Pink Neon as Hippies rallied against conformity, all things unnatural, including plastics, anything “Parental” and even Mom and Dad’s Lawn Decor. Home and Garden Magazines pleaded with people to abandon the gnomes, lawn jockeys, and flamingos in favor of classier yard décor such as Fountains and rocks. By 1970, even Sears Roebuck had stopped selling the Pink Flamingo’s.
Then in the 1960’s Pink Flamingo’s enjoyed a resurgence as a Pop Culture Icon due to artists such as Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg who embraced the Low Brow and elevated mass culture.
Today we unapologetically enjoy Pink Flamingo’s anywhere and everywhere, no longer looked down on but elevated to hip and cool modern fun Decor status!
