Wednesday, Nov. 6: "Have A Terrific Great Nice OK Day" reception

Kittredge Art Gallery

So, how many Americans do you think hate their jobs? If Office Space is any indication, the rough estimate would probably be around 95 percent, eh? Imagine 95 percent of humanity burying their dreams, staring at a corporate fax machine all day and secretly wanting to die. Cheery, isn't it? That's why so many people may connect with printmaker Randy Bolton. The Cranbrook Academy of Art teacher has titled his exhibition "Have A Terrific Great Nice OK Day," borrowing nostalgia-evolving illustrations of early children's books, a time when most of us want to return to. According the show hype, "these old images that are intended to reflect childhood security and innocence, Bolton molds them into ironic metaphors of a chaotic world," a world where you work today. Organize an office carpool and head over to Kittredge Art Gallery Nov. 6 for Bolton's reception. Maybe he can help you through your thing. {WV}
