Somehow, somebody out there either has a sense of humor or has absolutely no idea what they’re doing. I’d like to think it’s the sense of humor thing.
Earlier this year I entered Orangatang into an legitimate art exhibit, and somehow he managed to get accepted into the show. The Southwestern Pennsylvania Council for the Arts holds a Regional Juried Art Exhibition each year at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Ligonier. This is their 16th year.
The image over there to the right shows Orangatang in situ at the opening, taken just to prove he was actually there. No Photoshopping or anything. Notice how I couldn’t get even one person to look in his direction. They were too busy drinking. It was an open bar, after all.
