The “BEVERLY FRESH: Really Somethin Else” Exhibition is at DePaul Art Museum
In his first solo museum exhibition in Chicago, artist, musician, and back-road drifter Beverly Fresh, also known as Zack Ostrowski (2D Design ’09), takes on the incongruities, social rituals, and archetypes of the rural Midwest. Pulling from age-old performance traditions, juvenile graffiti, backyard debauchery, adult social clubs, amateur living room theater, and pig wrestling, Really Somethin Else is a keyed-up regurgitation of rural Midwestern symbols, behaviors, and vernacular. His immersive installations take visitors through peripheral elements of American culture. The exhibition is at DePaul Art Museum and open through August 5.
