First Friday shows some color, and a little skin

This month's First Friday show at the Lark Street BID featured an incredibly talented local artist, Kevin Bruce, who's work vibrates with color and personality. No need for bashfulness here; the dancing go-go boys featured in his work entice viewers into a world of thumping beats, bright lights, and sensual bodies. Complimentary to these attractive pieces stands a different look at beauty, where bodies jiggle for sweet jelly donuts rather than the music.
Whether your craving pleasure from the disco or Boston Cremes; this show has been a pleasure for us at the Lark Street BID to display. Bruce's work will continue to be featured for the remainder of this month, so come see it before the go-go boys dance out of here!
