It's Art All Over

Stepping onto (that's right, onto) one of Jim Lambie's installations seems like entering a room where an optical illusion and a box of crayons had either a violent fight or incredible sex. Lambie's recognizable creations use yards and yards of multi-hued vinyl tape in linear patterns on a gallery floor to highlight the room's architecture. So, instead of gazing at the walls as you would at almost any other art gallery, you'll find yourself staring down at your feet instead, as the colorful lines lead you among Lambie's other works, including collages and (more traditional) sculptures that reference popular music and culture. Explore the works of the Glaswegian artist at the Goss-Michael Foundation, 1405 Turtle Creek Blvd., 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays through September 3. Admission is free. Call 214-696-0555 or visit
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 7. Continues through Sept. 3, 2011
