PBR Book Club and Yarn Bombing

We are always on the look-out for weird and unusual art in Larryville.  We noticed some crazy structures in front of the Spencer Museum. According to the Spencer's website, they are participating in a "Yarn Bombing."  Area artists helped create structures that are at the entrance of the museum.  Here is what the museum's website says about them: 
A squadron of snuggly snails currently occupies a bench near the Spencer Museum of Art's front entrance. While "snuggly" and "snails" may seem contradictory terms, in this case they're not--these snails are of the subgenus Helix soft and crocheted. And they fit right in with the colorful yarn flowers currently blooming in the Museum's central greenspace.
These will be up until July 1. 

Lawrence photographer Emily Hunt will open her show " Reciprocity" at Teller's tonight from 6-8 p.m. According to the annoucement  "Reciprocity will feature several large film prints as well as some smaller prints and Polaroids. Many of the photographs capture homes and other buildings free of occupants and passersby."

In other news, the PBR Book Club will meet at Frank's North Star to discuss the latest book "2666."  Tall Boys will be on hand.  You can find the PBR Book Club blog here: http://pbrbookclub.blogspot.com/

And, don't forget about our Summer Scenester Scavenger Hunt for this week.  So far, the most anyone has guessed is 4/7.  You can find this week's game here:  http://larryvilleartists.blogspot.com/2012/06/summer-scenester-scavenger-hunt-week-1.html
