Weirdo Wednesday – November 16, 2011

Weirdo WednesdayOh those silly New Yorkers.

Somewhere along the way I’m confident I played strip poker in mixed company. I’m positive tequila and locked doors were involved.

The art community in New York city is not inherently weird, or bizarre, but on occasion some of the ideas get pretty zany and extreme. Take the new exhibit by local artist Zefrey Throwell. His “I’ll Raise You One…” romp art show opened in TriBeCa’s Art In General gallery, over the weekend.

Through this week a total of 48 participants will literally gamble the clothes off their backs and breasts in the name of art. I’m talking the ancient and noble game of Strip Poker where anyone is subject to lose a shirt or their skivvies.

Anyone in the neighborhood can swing by to keep up on the action between 10:30 in the morning and 6:00 p.m.  The poker table is in full view of the front window.

Let’s hope the front room is well heated before everything gets too perky.

This may not be entirely weird but it is provocative.
