WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Focused On The Fringe

What’s a nice girl like Emily Brandehoff doing making gory paintings like this? Young sweethearts look as if they’re from Our Town, except they’re chewing one another to a pulp.

Why are Hollywood glamour photographs on display at the Taft Museum of Art? FotoFocus isn’t reason enough; the Taft likes to establish a tie between the renowned permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. So what is Myrna Loy doing here?   

Blue Man Group (Review)

Now say "Blue Man" — Ready Go!

1 Comment · Friday, October 19, 2012

‘Project Obscura’ Puts Focus on Communities

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 19, 2012
It’s appropriate that Project Obscura at Northside’s Prairie Gallery opened before FotoFocus officially kicks off Oct. 5. After all, the camera obscura (Latin for “dark chamber”) led to the modern camera.
