This episode explores the benefits and challenges of showing art in unusual spaces and walking the line between vandalism and public art. Guests include Scott Wayne Indiana, the artist behind the horses you see attached to rings in the sidewalk all around Portland and Chris Haberman, who has shown his work in convenience stores and sold paintings out of the trunk of his car. This show will also take listeners inside the tiniest gallery in town. Just three and a half feet high, Core Gallery is a popular gallery space in Anna Todaro's Everett Station loft apartment.
Bill Resnick hosts this show as the Old Moles root out the underlying issues regarding taxes, the courage it takes to keep hope alive in hard times, labor struggles in Colorado and Colombia, and inequities in human health.
