Ye Cats! | New Times Broward-Palm Beach

Ye Cats!

Show of hands here: Do you think the World Wide Web is more smitten with boobs or with cats? Surely, at least, those twin titans of online traffic have remarkably separate target audiences. Hell, some of the biggest fans of cats might not even be online yet. How in the world do they get their feline fix, then? Lurking in long coats at the back of the newsstand, grabbing their plastic-wrapped cat smut and paying without making eye contact? The horror. Perhaps instead they’ll visit exhibits such as the “The Cat’s Meow,” an alleged cultural event that will feature (and we quote the host museum here) “fine art and photography” and “fun photos and stories from community cat owners” as well as cat art by kids. Even if you’re more of a dog person and therefore rational, you’ll have fun blowing minds by cueing up some “I Can Has Cheezburger” crap on your iPad. Get ’em, tiger, beginning Thursday at the Cornell Museum of Art & American Culture (51 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach). Tickets cost $2 to $6, free for kids under five. Call the Old School Square Cultural Arts Center at 561-243-7922, or visit
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10:30 a.m.; Sundays, 1 p.m. Starts: Oct. 14. Continues through Feb. 27, 2010
