Forevertron!

I was so excited to have finally made it here. We took a special trip up to the Wisconsin Baraboo area just to see this amazing sculpture garden. The story is, Tom Every, aka Dr. Evermor, was a wrecker who had become depressed to see so much quality work just end up as unused scrap.  The Forevertron is the solution, an homage to Science Fiction afficionados everywhere. Mandy and I took so many more pictures than I have space for here. I’d been dying to see this place ever since a coworker described it to me two years ago.

The Epicurean is among my favorite pieces here, it all just comes together so well.

I loved this telescope. There’s something slightly ominous about it.

Saturday’s Art Events

Collect-O-Rama was smaller than I expected, but still had plenty of weirdness to experience. This benefit for the Intuit Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art was one-day only. Maybe they’ll have another next year. Saw lots of weird stuff there and I also picked up this nice Mexican bark painting.

From there we went to Replica Chicago‘s storefront opening at 4425 N. Milwaukee Avenue . It’s great to see indie businesses open up storefronts like this, a sign that the Chicago independent art and craft market  is doing pretty damn good. Head up and check this place out, and if you need anything screen-printed, keep them in mind!

If you haven’t been to the Oh No! Doom gallery yet, you should. Saturday was the opening of Relentless, which featured new work from Matthew Ryan Sharp, Tyler Coey, Yosiell Lorenzo, and Brent Nolasco. The exhibit’s up through June 7th, at 1800 N. Milwaukee Ave.
