I hope this is okay on Craftster, but I thought I would plug a local art event that ya'll might find interesting:
At MassArt:Shintaro Miyake PresentsBEAVER NO SEIKATSU
Sandra and David Bakalar Gallery @ massachusetts college of art (621 Huntington ave)
February 7 - March 18, 2006
The opening reception is
Tuesday, February 7 from 5 - 7pm
It's free and open to the public (wine and cheese etc.)During the opening and also on Wed - Thurs Feb 8 - 9 from 10am - 6pm there will be a live artist performance.
Highlights of this show will include Japanese artist Shintaro Miyake as "beaver" doing a performative wall drawing, a beaver pond with recreated artistic interpretation of a dam and lodge, beaver "documentary" film, drawings, photos and natural history museum about real beavers. Think of all this in the realm of Japanese pop-culture meets the american landscape.
