The art of the gaze will not be denied in a crowded room. The artist Benny Bing's portraits gaze was not the only one that wouldn't be denied earlier this evening.
There were the three pan handlers between the Queen subway station and the Queen St westbound streetcar on my way to the NXNE Art Show and Industry Mixer (presented by Aurora) at the Great Hall on Monday night.
[Honestly, I am starting to think that they should institute the guaranteed minimum income program for all of Ontario. Then immediately ban pan-handling all together. As far as I am concerned all panhandling is aggressive.] #JustSayin,
Then on my home from the event there was this guy that jumped in front of the eastbound Queen streetcar to stop it. Then when the driver wouldn't open the door to let him on, he threw fried chicken at both the streetcar, and at a vehicle that was pulled up beside us waiting for a green light. [If that was a two piece buddy only had French fries left.]
After the fried chicken guy it was a pretty peaceful journey home.
Anyways I will end this on a positive note, I have one more sleep then I get a sneak peak at what is THEE most important art exhibit to come to Toronto for the full 2018 season. I'll post some legendary pics as soon as I possibly can.
