What if excess levels of cuteness were actually harmful to your health? Puppies would have to be banned from public places in fear that two or more might congregate. Babies would require warning tags, and painted William Shatner masks like the one Michael Myers wears in Halloween. Icanhascheezburger.com would quite literally make your fucking head explode.
Good thing being cute isnt fatal, otherwise a trip to Bear and Bird Gallery (Upstairs at Tates Comics, 4566 N. University Dr., Lauderhill) tonight would end rather unfortunately for all involved. B&Bs latest show, Cute Attack, explores the realm of all things adorable from a slew of different angles: Theres cute-cute, furry-cute, cuddly-cute, innocent-cute, and even psychotic-cute. (Aww, what a gorgeous lil bloody butchers knife!) Some of the work -- collected from over 20 artists including Helena Garcia, Terribly Odd, and Justin Degarma -- is your patent oil-on-canvas type. Other folks went so far as to stuff things. Tonights reception kicks off at 7 p.m., and its free, so youll have some moolah left to buy all the cute you want. Visit www.bearandbird.com.
