40 Years of Blood Sweat and Beers
Last night we viewed a 40-year retrospective of Bob"Daddy-O" Wade's artwork at the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture. The showing featured a concert. There were some notables in the crowd from the art, film and legal communities. Bob has a well-deserved national reputation for making large, whimiscal construction pieces. If you have ever driven past Carl's Corner on the way to Dallas, you'll remember his bulbous frogs playing guitars on top of the truck stop. Here you see an alligator on wheels made from Altoid tins. If you want to go by and see it for yourself, the display of his enjoyable work is up until Oct. 24. Location: 1516-B South Lamar.
