Bring Me the Head of Ted Williams

Help meeeeee...I tend to think if an artist calls it art, then it's art. This made for some lively discussion when I visited MASS MoCA with the wife this Summer, but even among all the odd stuff in the old factory, we saw nothing as unusual as the creepy faux death mask of Ted Williams on display at a Chelsea's First Street Gallery. The Daniel Edwards exhibit, which is cheekily titled, The Ted Williams Memorial Display with Death Mask from The Ben Affleck 2004 World Series Collection, is on display until October 1; Pair a visit to the gallery with a ballgame and you've got yourself a perfect day.
