"Cream of Wheat: Politics of the 90's"
This upcoming First Friday is shaping up to be a big one, per our recent blog
on developments at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center
, but also because it's a rare chance to see works by Floyd Tunson
Tunson, who doesn't show often in the Springs, was the man behind the FAC's fantastic 2012 exhibit Son of Pop
(read more about that here
). Now you can see some of his works in two lofts during First Friday. Between 5-8 p.m. Tunson works will be on display (and some for sale) at the Daniels and Giddings II buildings. The addresses are 108 N. Tejon St., Unit F and 101 N. Tejon St., Unit 260; greeters will be on hand at both venues to help guide visitors.
From the presser: "According to Tunson’s agent, Wylene Carol
, 'There’s no place like home for viewing art. Certainly it’s wonderful to see art you love in a gallery or museum, but to live with a painting, sculpture, or photograph and continue to see new things in it and to be inspired by it every single day is to live an enriched life.'"

, meanwhile, opened last moth at the Yellowstone Art Museum
in Billings, Mont. after having stopped at 516 Arts
in Albuquerque, N.M.
