So, the promotion for this show says this;
The Old Bullshit was slow.
The Old Bullshit was simple and made people happy some of the time.
The Old Bullshit was mean. 
The Old Bullshit loved money but could appreciate hard work. The Old Bullshit was comfortable with illusion. 
The Old Bullshit went to bed early and woke up before the sun. 
The New Bullshit is new.

Justin Plakas at Wonder Fair

Unsung Heros: Work by Justin Plakas
Wonder Fair

We always like to stop by Wonderfair on Final Fridays.  Here is what their Facebook invite says about this event:
It must be really cold for stuff like sports trophies and magazine clippings in the shadow of high art material. But Justin Plakas wants those items to know they are art’s heroes in his new show debuting at The Wonder Fair this Final Friday, aptly titled UNSUNG HEROES.

Here is the Facebook Invite:

We are anxious to hear the new single by Hospital Ships that comes out on Friday.
