Rick Ordonez : Kitty Litter
Opening: Saturday November 20, 2010 | 7-9 PM
From the LA Weekly: "Authorities on Wednesday announced they've taken one of the Los Angeles region's most hardcore criminals off the streets -- a man who surely strikes fear into the eyes of Hells Angels, Crips, Bloods and Girl Scouts alike. That's right, he's the ... kitty cat graffiti artist. (We shiver just thinking about it)."

Good friend and awesome artist Derek Chan has a show opening this weekend at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Info below:
November 6-28, 2010
From the museum website: "Derek Chan's rigorous paintings, works-on-paper, and durational performances record the minutia of daily life while combining historical narratives to reflect on such themes as spirituality and environmental sustainability. Chan develops his work through a highly personal, meditative practice that most recently explores the spiritual and poetic nature of the Four Corners region, where Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado meet.
