Over the weekend I was introduced to two fabulous album covers, the above, a Las Vegas style cover album with Terry Snider and the All Stars, designed by Joseph Albers. In the unlikely event I have readers traveling to Porto Portugal within the next month, the record can be purchased at Inc, a one of a kind art bookstore in the area also carrying records designed by artists. (Address to come — I’m not so good with Portugese Google.)
Meanwhile, this album cover came up the next day while I was hanging out with parents discussing how their children don’t like to be bored. Not having kids myself, I didn’t have much to add to that particular conversation, though I did manage to relevantly note that the buses to Nowhere and Boredom clearly lead to the same place.
In more relevant news, 31 Grand, a gallery specializing in contemporary and emerging art announced it will close its doors in a combo Christmas and final show email. They will be missed.
