One, Two, Three, Four: I Declare A Thumb War

Growing up in Texas' dust bowl throws a distinct filter on adolescence. As the good, God-fearing, Lions Club-sponsoring businesses shut down each evening, the day simply ends. Well, unless you mash-up your own fun, like watching a league of traveling amateur wrestlers set up at the rodeo grounds. That's an experience shared by performance art duo Joel Kiser and Luke Sides; they'll channel those memories of low-population perfection Thursday at the Dallas Museum of Art (1717 North Harwood St.) as Kiser and Sides take it to the mat in a thumb wrestling super-match throwdown. It’s Sport and Persona in Performance Art, the finale for PerformanceSW’s educational series of workshops, panels and lectures for Available Space, the all-local exhibition up until August 18. Declare a thumb war and go for the glory from 7 to 8:30 p.m. It’s free. Visit
