Made it to the Brooklyn Museum over the holiday. Saw the vibrant Fred Tomaselli show, an extensive collection of the California-born, Brooklyn-based artist's work. Psychedelic, collagist, utopian, graphically stunning, sometimes inspiring, occasionally abstruse, highly recommended. Through January 2, 2011.
