I'm honored and privileged to be asked to take part in the first Boston appearance of the popular Artcrank series of art poster show. If you're not familiar, Artcrank works with local artists to create limited edition prints that celebrate cycling culture. Then they throw a fantastic party, and make the prints available for a very reasonable cost, as well as a few other items. A chunk of the proceeds go to a local charity, and lots of people go home with great bike art prints.
It's going to be a fun night filled jam-packed with biking awesomeness. What's not to love? If you make it, stop by and say "Hi."
Here's the details on the opening:
Where: Fourth Wall Project, 132 Brookline Ave., Boston MA
When: Saturday, July 20th, 5pm–11pm (that's tomorrow) More info
I've long been fascinated with the origin of language, specifically colloquialisms that lose their original meaning but are still used in common speech. "Pop goes the weasel" is phrase that began as Cockney rhyming slag the meant "pawn the coat." It turns out that the cheery-sounding nursery rhyme is actually about being down on your luck, selling your clothes and going to the pub. Who knew?
If you're not so down on your luck, you can purchase a print here.
