Iconoclasts BG exhibit takes quirky look at icons


An exhibit of words and images and slightly twisted takes on iconic figures opens Saturday at art-a-site!
Gallery & Studio with a reception planned from 7 to 9 p.m.
"Even Needed Coffee" features the stories of Bowling Green State University graduate Dusty
Baker and drawings by Dan Mauk, of Bowling Green and a graduate of Otsego High School and of BGSU.
The exhibit continues through the end of the month.
Additional work will be on at the BLDG, 133 E. Wooster St.
The work at art-a-site! features the stories "My First and Only Jimi Hendrix Concert."
One of those illustrations – Baker said it was his favorite – shows the legendary rock guitarist piloting
a fighter plane.
The other is "The Night I Got Hustled by the Reverend," which imagines Martin Luther King Jr.
playing pool the night before he delivered his "I Have a Dream Speech."
At the BLDG exhibit, the work features pieces from "Even Jesus Needed Coffee," a series of
connected stories told from the viewpoints of Jesus, Pontius Pilate and Judas.
This is not the duo’s first collaboration. They produced "Unblemished" a graphic novel based on
Baker’s divorce and have done a book about China.
Baker teaches freshman English at Norwalk High School, and Mauk works at the Path Center in Bowling
