Run, Blago, Run

Come out this Friday and see what our ex-Guv and his hair are up to. This 3-day show will feature work based on ex-Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and his poufy mane o'hair.

Info from their site...

Run, Blago, Run! Show is based on Rod Blagojevich’s now classic black Nike tracksuit and jogging pose. Maybe you’ve seen stencils of him jogging or lighting campfires in Chicago. Or maybe you’ve heard the self-professed ‘hard working cowboy’ compare himself to Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The Run, Blago Run! Show will allow these dreams (or nightmares) to come true. Juried by actress Joan Cusack, legendary house DJ Derrick Carter and artists Ray Noland aka CRO. 10% of show sales donated to Street-Level Youth Media.
Artists include: Mireya Acierto, Scot LaFavor, Dan Lacey, Diederick Kraaijeveld, Ray Noland, Tariq Rafiq, Amanda Rivkin, and Jeff Zimmerman.
