, the new art exhibit at the Dolphin
gallery (1600 Liberty, 816-842-4415), is ballsy stuff. One of its featured artists is Colorado-based Del Harrow, who took his piece out of the Denver Art Museum and rehung it at the Dolphin the way he wanted it — a massive ceramic tapestry painted the color of the ocean and the sky. David Ford built a 10-foot-plus cinder-block wall under a synthetic moldy trellis in the smaller room of the gallery, and Kansas City Art Institute grad Aaron Wrinkle (now based in Los Angeles) built his 90-inch-by-108-inch piece on the spot, three days before the show went up. The gallery is pushing KC's art and pushing us with it. Anyone buying one of these works just needs a space big enough to put it in. The free show is open Tuesday through Saturday through January 21.
