So the Lab's new Failure exhibit, which unites work from thirty artists from around the nation on the theme of failure, is "an attempt to be playful about it, but also to really speak to people who are a little critical of those norms," says Lerner. Failure opens tonight at 7 p.m. at 404 South Upham Street in Lakewood with a free reception that includes board games, Tetris, cheap wine, bad poetry and heartbreaking love songs played on the oboe. First dates are not encouraged to attend. Visit www.belmarlab.org/failure.php or call 303-934-1777 for information.
