This weekend, while you are nursing your Cinco de Mayo hangover, why not check out some art? We totally hear it works just as good as any hangover pill.

An exhibit all about Chintown opens on May 6th, accurately called Chinatown (New York). Photographer Andrew Garn brings us a new view of the area by focusing in on the neighborhoods iconography. Bhudddas, sweat shops, garish neon lights hanging over the streets...it's all there. His tranparancies are mounted on to red laquered light boxes (red is the color of wealth!) - becoming an object of the culture, not just an outside view.
