A painter, a photographer, and a performer walk into a bar… and you have the showcase with all three 2014 Genius Award nominees in the category of art at the Frye tonight. I’ll be talking about C. Davida Ingram, Emily Gherard, and Glenn Rudolph with the artists themselves. While all the Genius showcases are technically sold out, there’s a high chance of walk-up availability. Come at 5:30 and join in for the preshow reception (wander the museum! Hobnob with the nominees and already-elected Geniuses! Have a free drink!), then at 6:15 tickets will be issued to standbys in the order of their arrival. See you at the Frye! (Frye Art Museum, 704 Terry Ave, fryemuseum.org, 5:30 pm, $10, 21+)
