Saturday & Sunday discover more art in the hood.
Well its time to go check some of it out. We've got the Fisher Landau Center for Art with some awesome looking shows going on. This photo alone had me wanting to stop over to see what else they might have. Up on their 2nd floor right now are recent acquisitions featuring work by Matthew Barney, Lynn Davis, Yinka Shonibare, and Kara Walker. If you can't make it this weekend-fear not, all the purty pictures will be there until April 10th.
