Got Gunk?

“Got Gunk?”

The Radiator Specialty Company promotes it as a line of automotive maintenance products. More precisely, the discipline of philosophy states it applies to any indivisible whole. And though a common by-product of virtually every culture, now it’s even surfaced as…are you ready...an art form.

Modern Arts Midtown is featuring this mysterious substance in a variety of colors and formats in its current...

‘This Land is Your Land’

“So, when I have the strength to be honest, I do not hope to experience again the space I loved as a child. The loss is the single hardest fact for me to acknowledge in the American decline.

‘Wild’ Animals

When it comes to images of children, flowers and animals, most photography hovers between the “sure thing” and the cliché. In Wild: Animals in Contemporary Photography, the current exhibit sponsored by the Moving Gallery, curators Matthias Harder and Maren Polte successfully demonstrate how an ordinary subject can be raised to the level of fine art.

Wild, on display through Sept. 8 at the Artist Cooperative...
