Slideshow: August in Pictures

An all-access wristband to Lollapalooza lured ARTslut to Chicago, where she tried desperately to maintain a balanced diet of live music, salty nuts, dirty martinis, and contemporary art.


Although this 110-ton, $23 million, stainless steel sculpture by Indian-born British artist Anish Kapoor is officially named Cloud Gate, people call it The Bean.


L.A.-based Mark Bradford is officially ARTslut's new favorite artist. His exhibition at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art took paper to a dimension we didn't yet know existed.


Toronto's Crystal Castles lifted their name from She-Ra: Princess of Power. Alice Glass, the band's lead singer, somehow managed to stand up while crowd-surfing in Doc Martens.


This Jeff Koons sculpture is but one of the titillating treasures in the exhibition "Pandora's Box: Joseph Cornell Unlocks the MCA Collection."


Back in SA, the Current's Art Director presented an exhibition of his favorite covers, "Chuck Kerr's Top 15," at LoneStar Studios.


Around the corner at FL!GHT Gallery, local artist Bryson Brooks opened a budget-minded exhibition that included the gold-leafed piece above, Bison Brooks.


Just across the tracks at Alex Rubio's R Gallery, James R. Canales showed Memories of Lincoln.


Also at R Gallery, Ivan Salcido's sculptural installation H.5/4/DF stole the show.
