5 x 5 x 5 (plus): Huete, Liscum and Boyd on the Big Show at Lawndale

Robert Boyd

Since 2009, I've been writing about the annual Big Show at Lawndale. This year's edition was juried by Duncan KacKenzie, the force behind the popular art podcast, Bad at Sports. He's a brash, forceful personality, and I think the art in the show reflects his personality and tastes. So perhaps because of that, I decided that I wanted The Great God Pan Is Dead's posts about the Big Show to be something other than just my opinion. So I enlisted long-time contributor Dean Liscum and new contributor Betsy Huete to help. Three writers, three points of view, three tastes. Each of picked five pieces to write about.

Betsy's five pieces

Melinda Laszczynski, Hold On, 2013, Watercolor, acrylic, tape, wax, beads, 16 x 16 inches 

Dean's five pieces

JooYoung Choi, Sacrifice of Putt-Putt, 2013, acrylic and paper on canvas, 75 x 70 inches

Robert's Five pieces

Avril Falgout, Black Veil Brides, 2013, paper maché, 75 x 50 x 105 inches

But after I chose five pieces, I realized that I really wanted to write about more pieces from the show. So I dragooned Betsy and Dean into picking some "honorable mention" pieces. These we've published in a post called "More from the Big Show."
