20th Anniversary for Art Attack in Harbor Country is This Weekend: Art Attack had been around for almost a decade by the time I managed to make it to New Buffalo for the season kickoff celebration and, as I recall, it was cold outside. Stray Dog was just getting started and Artist Steve Rubinkam had managed to talk the owner into providing a large pot of chili to warm up the stalwarts. Of course, galleries have changed hands and moved around and there are more of them by now, but it's nice to see that some old traditions like the New York Festical of International Commercials have been maintained or revived. “Ad Fest and Feast,” will be held at the Acorn Theater in Three Oaks tomorrow night and tickets are $40 per person.
