Ah, the siren call of seedy motel rooms. For anyone who’s ever secretly fantasized about resurrecting one of those tacky little motor courts along 180 between Dallas and Fort Worth and turning it into something special, head to Denton’s Clayton House Motel tonight so artist Christopher Carver can show you how it’s done. His “You Are Here” installation features over 1,000 fly catcher strips and a bad coffee and donuts reception – “in true low-rent motel continental breakfast tradition,” as promised by the artist himself.
Room’s on the ground floor, up at the front, and the show starts at 8 p.m. For more information, click here, or email Christopher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
