taking on water

Frank Ford's ship isn't sinking - but if it was, he'd have lots of people to throw him a line. Frank has been making wonderful pictures in Milwaukee for a long time, and has assembled what he calls The Lifeboat Show, a collection of portraits of friends he'd want with him, should he start taking water on. It's a who's who of Milwaukee's theater, photography and art world: like Jim Dine's Name Painting meets Noah's ark. Shouldn't everyone do this?

If you're within the sound of my voice, you have a few days left to see the show. The Cedar Gallery is at 326 N. Water Street in the Third Ward (above Starbucks). Hours: 1-5 pm daily, with a closing party this Saturday.
