Greg Metz Teams Up With PETA To Display His Very Special Last Supper on the National Mall

11 years ago by Robert Wilonsky
We're clearly big fans of UTD's Greg Metz -- not for nothing did we once bestow upon him our Best Visual Artist award. In doing so, we claimed that "his art carries energy and a bit of controversy," which so happened to include a certain work done in a certain...

Cesar Chavez: Good Guy, Really Boring Movie

7 years ago by Inkoo Kang
The Chicano labor leader César Chávez can now join Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela in the pantheon of heroes whose world-altering achievements are dutifully recounted in timid, lifeless films any substitute can pop into the school DVD player when the regular history teacher is out.
