Are You Sure You're Going to Heaven?
A modern fire and brimstone tirade about going to hell in Harvard Square. I was struck by the irony of the sensual backdrop: a painting of a semi-nude woman looking over his shoulder as he draws and shouts through his wireless microphone about the perils of modern life and going to hell.
The backdrop is an advertisement for an exhibit of Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese: Rivals in Renaissance Venice at the Museum of Fine Arts. A great antidote to the perils of modern life and a fine way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
