you’re either on the bus…

born cross eyed

Mixing a lot of business and some especially novel art this weekend will be Born Cross Eyed‘s Joseph David. A guitarist for the 16 year old local Grateful Dead tribute band, David is also a senior transportation planner for the Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization as well as a board member of Art in Motion.

Along with LexTran and LexArts, Art in Motion recently held a national contest for designs of new, artistically inclined bus shelters. The winning design is to be constructed on Versailles Road later this year. So having helped plan the shelter (along with future shelters), David is now helping raise the money to build it. He the rest of Born Cross Eyed will headline a benefit tonight at The Dame, 156 West Main.

“It’s interesting for me, because it’s part of my everyday job to look at projects like this,” David said. “Then I thought it would be cool to join Art in Motion to blend art into it all. And, lo and behold, I’m a musician that has felt very well supported by the community for 16 years. It all works together.” 

The evening begins with an Art in Motion reception at 8. An exhibition of works by University of Kentucky visual arts students will follow at 9. Born Cross Eyed will perform at 10:30. Admisssion is by a $5-$10 donation to Arts in Motion at the door. Call (859) 226-9005.

Born Cross Eyed will also play Saturday at Brick Alley in Frankfort and March 1 back in Lexington at Lynagh’s.
