LitChick: How Forklift, Ohio changed my life, made me like poetry again
All I can say is that I hope that Forklift has this effect on everyone.
Our friend Tony Luensman opened Arenas at CAM last night ... what fun to see him become so very successful.
Props to Sara Pearce for her deep knowledge of local artists and their work. We're lucky to have her back on the beat in a city that needs to know how lucky it is to have such vibrant local artists.
So get thee to Tony's show! He's the kind of artist that is able to smuggle hundreds of glowing green penises into CAM, only to make you feel bad for thinking it's a joke when you read about the piece and realize that it is, in fact, a heartfelt tribute ...
