Glasstire Top 5: John Wilcox, Mike Osborne

by Mashal Noor 24 Oct 2014 10:01 AM

This week’s DFW picks on Glasstire’s Top 5 places to “Go See Some Art” are The Wilcox Space and Mike Osborne’s “Monopoly”.


Continuing to share Glasstire’s weekly  Top 5 – a look at their picks for art to see around the state.

This week, there were two picks from the DFW area.  The third installation at The Wilcox Space, a space dedicated to the artwork of the late John Wilcox, is opening on Friday night, which is the only time the public can view the space without an appointment. The artist’s former studio in Exposition Park has been turned into a gallery dedicated to showing his work. The guest curator changes from show to show. This time it’s Leigh Arnold, assistant curator at the Nasher Sculpture Center, who focuses on Wilcox’ use of words in his work.

Also, Mike Osborne’s Monopoly is showing at the Holly Johnson Gallery.  Monopoly translates the board game into photographs that grapple with Atlantic City’s complicated past and present.
