BEVERLY FRESH: Really Somethin Else

@ DePaul Art Museum

935 W Fullerton Ave, Chicago, IL 60614

Opening Thursday, April 26th, from 6PM - 8PM

On view through Sunday, August 5th

In his first solo museum exhibition in Chicago, artist, musician, and back-road drifter Beverly Fresh 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.

Also opening at DPAM are “Out of Easy Reach,” and “DPAM Collects: Happy Little Trees and Other Recent Acquisitions.”
