The Darker Side of Autumn

Intrepid photographer Peter Patau snapped this shot of a gnarly skull on a picnic table in Wingra Park. The title he gave the photo seems even more appropriate considering the nasty weather we've been having lately. It won't be long before seeking out street art becomes a major expedition. Our local alt-weekly's website also picked up on this one.

Are you prepared?

So asketh these incredible posters stuck to the wall outside of the Weary Traveler on Willy St. (as well as Mother Fools). Is there a story to these?

SOLVE art show and reception at East High

Tiptoe's Drawing at the Scene of Brendan's Death - Still Riding 3-22-09

Just got the head's up from SOLVE's father, Bill Scanlon:
Brendan Scanlon, the artist known on the streets as “SOLVE,” grew up in Madison and graduated in 2002 from East High School. After graduating he lived in Chicago, where he worked as a graphic designer and became recognized, in traditional art circles and on the streets, as a prolific and intensely creative artist, before being struck down in 2008 in a senseless act of violence. A retrospective show of Scanlon’s art is now on display at the Ray Edwards Art Gallery at East High, 2222 East Washington Avenue. In connection with the show, the public is invited to the Gallery for a reception with light refreshments on Saturday, September 26, from 5 until 8 PM.
