Bad at Sports Episode 133: Boston AICA Sorry. We were a little slow due to power outages and the mediocre AT&T.

Art Critic Greg Cook (The Boston Globe, The Boston Phoenix) joins Matt
Nash, James Nadeau and Christian Holland of Big RED & Shiny to discuss
the 2008 AICA New England Awards. Using the list of winners as a
starting point, they discuss the state of the arts in New England and
what they thought was great, mediocre and terrible. Disappointment in
the new Institute of Contemporary Art is expressed; AICA is
scrutinized; and conclusions are elusive.

And the magic of Mike Benedetto.
