    Dr. Feelgood - You're not a doctor, but Trauma Center lets you play one on TV.

    COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUS - OBJECT + THOUGHT

    I don't put much stock in shows installed in non-art businesses, because they're typically thrown together and feature the work of hobbyist-artists. So it wasn't until I'd heard a lot of positive buzz about OBJECT + THOUGHT (3559 Larimer Street, 720-...
