Arts preview: Celebrate Independence with satirical "America, F--- Yeah!" exhibit

The most fun way to pay tribute to the land of the free is with a little satire and a lot of “F--- Yeah!”ing — and what’s more American than having the most fun?

For its 2013 edition of this Fourth of July art party at Old Familiar Barbershop, nearly 20 local artists have provided patriotic-themed work for the barbershop’s walls. Artists include J. Brett Prince and the artists of Short North Tattoo, Mike Newton, Roger Kent Grosswiler and Kyle Glispie.

Seeing ’Merica art in a business that combines an old timey profession with modern manly hipness — the place might as well have a corner to chop wood and carve red meat — is a fun alternative for celebrating Independence Day.

If you can’t make it Thursday, the show will hang for a couple months because bleeding red, white and blue shouldn’t last but one day, fools.
