Ohhh, Barra... barracuda! Yeah!!!
Anyone out there in the OC can tell me if these (#1 #2)are, in fact, legit and how much Disneyland is charging for them?
These are certainly interesting - prototype images of the Shag designs used (and not used) by Bell Sports.

Group Show @ Tin Man Alley, Newhope, PA
Tin man is in Philadelphia, not Newhope (which is about an hour north of Philly). Here's Yahoo's map. (By the way, I'm not sponsored by Yahoo, I'm just too lazy to find an alternative.)

Group Show @ DC Gallery, Denver, CO
Sweet! Opens just a few weeks after we escape from the hinterland of Northern Japan and move to Denver. Here's DC Gallery's map (and Yahoo's too).
Speaking of Shag's gallery shows, the good people at M Modern Gallery have posted pictures from their "I Dream of Tiki" group show on Shutterfly.
Below are Shag's two contributions to the show:
"Heavyweight" looks like it might have been done recently - look at the richness of the green background. "Calypso"? With the almost impressionistic tikis I'd guess this is an early one.
What's happening with Copro/Nason's upcoming group show, "The Age of Aquarius: Summer Solstice"? I don't know either.
