This exhibit is basically his brainchild. He & Ai Wei Wei both collaborated on it. This is a pair that I wouldn’t have thought to put together, but the exhibit is a meeting of two artists that have more similarities and connections than meets the eye.

This one especially appealed to me because I love food!  We talk everything from Andy Warhol’s legendary Campbell’s Soup Can painting, to why food is so inspirational, to Akron’s talented art scene.
