Made in America

Does anybody know why Made in America isn't held at one of the stadiums? Yesterday, Sept 1, after the fences were down, I tried to walk through Eakins Oval and was blocked by a young man in blue who told me that Eakins Oval was private property and that if I proceeded I would be stopped by people with guns. The sound level and crowds and badly rerouted buses are bad enough -- but guns, after the whole thing is over? I think I should rephrase my question -- how can we get future Made in America events to be held at a stadium?

Lebe describes his penlight photographs of male figures as representations of “the sexual electricity that we can feel along our skin when in proximity with someone we are attracted to.” The photograph is on view in “In Dialogue: Wolfgang Tillmans” http://ow.ly/AS31K
