When: Feb. 20-March 23 2012
The week marks the opening of Ephemeral Ink: Selections of Tattoo Art from the Kinsey Institute, a new exhibition featuring two century's worth of tattoo-inspired art, including flash art (i.e. stereotypic tattoo designs collected in binders or painted on parlor walls), paintings of tattoos and photographs of anonymous and fine art photographers, notably Michael Grecco, Jess T. Dugan, Chas Ray Krider and George Platt Lynes. Kinsey intern Amy Tims curated; both she and Catherine Johnson-Roehr, curator for Art, Artifacts and Photographs at the Kinsey, will speak about the show at 3 p.m., Feb. 24, at Fisher Hall's Peine Theatre. A reception will follow at 5 p.m. in the gallery. Regular gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, with appointments welcome for other times.
