Need to break out of a "vanilla" art streak? Check out the works of Bob Mizer and Tom of Finland (nicknamed so because of his hard-to-pronounce Finnish last name) which epitomize post-WWII gay culture, subverting symbols of the masculine—think bikers, lumberjacks and cowboys—into homoerotic material. You may want to leave the kiddies and parents at home for this NSFW exhibit that includes collage boards, films, photography, and issues of Mizer’s magazine Physique Pictorial. Get your fill of eye candy and rack up culture points to boot. Speaking of boots, see above.
