AN IMPERFECT UNION: A Re-Illustration of the Civil War By The Heads of State
Art in the Age celebrates Independence Day with an exhibition of Philly-based design and illustration studio The Heads of State. With the 150th anniversary of the Civil War as inspiration, the duo of Jason Kernevich and Dustin Summers have created a number of silkscreened and archival prints feature Yankees, Rebels, and the odd Objector.
Designing exclusively for this exhibition, The Heads of State will transform Art in the Age into a Civil War battlefield, applying their signature graphic style to deconstruct and reinterpret images of battle scenes and war torn capitals, regimental flags, newspaper headlines and more.
The exhibition rages through August 28, 2011.

Erin’s Last Supper; a Fatty Pile for the Ages
DSR, have a box of tissues ready, because the following is going to make you cry like the Bachelorette when Bentley left.
One thing that I do not understand about Chicago is how everyone that lives her is not grossly overweight. Chicago, like my hometown of Philadelphia, has a dangerous penchant for making healthy foods unhealthy (bacon on salad/vegetables/everything) and unhealthy food EVEN WORSE (wrapped in bacon/deep fried/cheesy-blaster’d). The menus at most of the places we go look like they could have been created by the guys behind Epic Mealtime. I will henceforth refer to this emerging genre as “fatty/stoner piles.” Today, I will tell you where to get the best one I have ever had.
And now for something completely different: after the Road Show closes for the day at 7:00 on July 1, you can view a modern take on the Civil War at a gallery just three blocks away and participate in the gallery district's venerable First Friday tradition of open houses, art, and free food.
Rockland Recollections: The Narragansett Beer Wagon
It was 1943, World War II was upon us and the citizens of Rockland were getting accustomed of that dirty word "rationing." Certain food items were rationed in our grocery stores and gasoline was rationed in several ways.
The regular driver of an automobile was allowed a certain amount of gasoline a week. Commercial businesses were allowed more to get their goods and services delivered. It seemed in either case that there was not enough gasoline available, except for the black market, which we won't get into in this writing, to satisfy every driving need.
