One for the road
Opens Saturday (Jul. 18), 11am, Schaefer International Gallery, MACC
A few months back some friends of mine were walking home from an undisclosed karaoke facility. Something caught the eye of one of these drunken mic slingers, whom shall here be known as CharTreuse. It was a downed crosswalk sign, still
attached to its post. ÒThis is highly illegal,Ó said one of the more cautious members of the party, who was visiting from the Mainland – Washington, DC to be specific. The whereabouts of the sign are still unknown to this day, but the appeal of roadside relics carries on in our hearts. Those who have read On the Road or any other Kerouac novel can probably attribute at least a few reckless acts to their having
recently read Kerouac. This is part of the appeal of Kauai artist Wayne ZebzdaÕs ÒRoad Trip,Ó an assembly of discarded road signs, reflective bumps and other highway guides. His exhibit coincides with Deybra FairÕs ÒFair Towers,Ó a collection of towering art pieces made from found items; colorful ones like Dr. Seuss book covers.
