April 29, 2006
With nearly 12 hours of art under my belt yesterday, I awoke this morning to find the heels and balls of my feet a healthy purplish-red. Yet more to come.
Along the way, I managed to snap a photo or two (while making sure to reserve ample memory card space for the decadence to come).
Anyways, here's a look at...Cop a walk, it's alright
In the bazaar atmosphere that is the greater Belmont area, it's easy to miss the art on display here and there as a part of NOVA's Artwalk. I witnessed a number of people walk by the Eric Hamilton videos on show outside of Taboo-Tabou virtually unaware, even as a speaker above them pumped out the mastrubatory grunts that accompany a portion of his 6-minute "Family Values":
If you feel like taking a stroll, though, do go check out Hamilton's videos at Taboo-Tabou (854 W. Belmont), Krista Peel's miniatures in the window of Think Small (3209 N. Clark), Joe Compean's stereo photography in the windows at the Hollywood Mirror (812 W. Belmont) and the comic illustrations by Steve Krakow (aka Plastic Crimewave) in a window display at Chicago Comics (3244 N. Clark).
Some shots of a few of the more easily photographed installations...
Jon Lowenstein at Bookworks (3444 N. Clark):
Sayre Gomez at Real Art, Inc. (3173 N. Broadway):
Mike Genovese at Reckless Records (3157 N. Broadway):
And, of course, consult the complete list for even more.
Lovely bearded hubbies Dutes Miller and Stan Shellabarger entertain the onlookers at Western Exhibitions' Art Chicago booth, as they continue their joint crocheting of a pink tube already several fairs in the making.
