Better late than never.....Fountain fair, which still has yet to be taken very seriously, contained some cool/interesting highlights in and among the lowbrow and/or sloppy work. Under-attended during its normal hours, and scaring off the more conservative art collectors, what with the ramshackle sauna full of naked Scandinavian men in the front yard (sorry, no photos), the fair still revels in its "avant-garde" reputation. Here's the good stuff:
