West Eleven, a brand-spanking-new creative house that was opened by artists Kim Barry and Joey Thate was a hit at The Brewery Art Walk. The biggest attraction was The Fat Man, a plaster sculpture of a naked heavyweight wearing a can on his junk which was part of an outdoor installation entitled American Values Part II. Paper and pencils were given to guests to draw or write about their very own experiences with a fat man in their life based on a story that was placed in front of the work. Inside the space, there was a radical piece named Turned On that was made out of the artist, Kim Barry's, secret chemical paint mixture which allows the sculpture to retain its shape no matter if it's placed on the ground or the wall.
