  Bailing twine and garbage bagsPDF files may take a moment to load

"One man's garbage is another man's art."

You've probably heard that phrase bandied about in a coffeehouse by a defensive ad exec or a senile phys ed teacher. An epithet so banal and neutral it could have only sprung forth from a first year philosophy student's paper on The Matrix. On a superficial level, it would seem the annual Masters of Fine Arts graduate exhibit at the Nickel Arts Museum is nothing more than an example of that tired cliche.

  Can't we all just get along?PDF files may take a moment to load

I've been waiting for this moment for eight years. Honestly. Ever since that birthday party in grade six where we managed to get the unrated version of Jason Goes to Hell from a video store that doesn't care what movies twelve-year-olds watch, I've been anticipating this film. You see, at the end of that movie, Jason's mask sits atop a sandy surface, until suddenly Freddy's familiar steel claws pull it down to Hades. It was a sign that the clash of the titans would be coming soon.

Soon is a relative term.
