It’s amazing what little surprises the world has to offer. To spend some quality time with Alex and my forever best friend, Leslie this weekend, I decided to take a break from art. But alas, art found me. We were walking through Short North, just a trendy area of town, in search of some food and shopping. And there it was, brought to life in 2002 by a couple of local artists [Steve Galgas and Mike Altman]. It is Grant Wood’s iconic American work, blended into the street scene and given a new twist. I may even like it a little better than the original– which I suppose is blasphemy. But to each his own.
