The Futurists

Enter tarot cards and palm readings and Miss Cleo, because few people like surprises, especially when it comes to their future. But unfortunately, unlike presents, you’re not likely to get an easy exchange if you don’t like what you see. Whether or not you believe in the divine powers of the tarot, there’s still a lot to be appreciated about their artistic value — a peek at doom and/or fortune and how everything (past, present, and future) comes together. Super Punch blogger John Struan saw this when he enlisted an army of artists to contribute a tarot card for the blog’s three-year anniversary. The artist’s interpretations, spanning from Jarrod Maruyama’s squeal-inducing cuteness to Santiago Caruso’s disturbingly grim Five of Cups, will be unveiled at the “Super Punch Tarot” exhibit at the Bear and Bird Boutique + Gallery, inside Tate’s Comics (4566 N. University Drive, Lauderhill). The free exhibit runs through March 23. Fun fact: Tarot cards originated in Europe as card games.
