Although I declared Sunday that I am officially sick and tired of Rod Blagojevich, I can’t resist passing along this bleepin’ golden news item related to the indicted former Illinois governor (courtesy of the Chicago Tribune):
Beginning Friday, a group of painters, muralists and graffiti artists will display two dozen Blagojevich-inspired creations at a three-day show called “Run, Blago, Run!”
Organized by Ray Noland, a Pilsen artist who created a popular street stencil of the former governor jogging in his trademark tracksuit, the show will display a series of works including “Survivor Blago,” which shows the former governor starting a camp fire; “Olympic Blago,” which features a jogging Blagojevich in a parody of the ads for Chicago’s Olympic bid, and “Escape from Chicago Blago,” which depicts him wearing a headlamp and crawling, as if through a tunnel.
The exhibit opens at 6 p.m. Friday at 1925 N. Milwaukee Ave. (Milwaukee and Western) in the Wicker Park neighborhood. The opening reception concludes at 9 p.m. The show continues from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
