here’s what one of my favorite artists, scott c. campbell, submitted:

ok, i didn’t read it too carefully until i started blogging it and now i REALLY want to go…maybe i will…

especially since i get free admission for blogging (purely unintentional)!

well, even though i won’t (shouldn’t be) able to make the opening reception…i’ll at least check out the exhibition since it runs until august 1st.
