ART | "Primary Caucus" 

Though drawings may not be the first thing that comes to mind when talking about presidential primaries and caucuses, artist Ray Ray Mitrano has created an exhibition which might change that perspective. "Primary Caucus," which focuses on the 2016 presidential election, not only includes drawings but also live performance based on election-based questions and a lawn picnic with a lot of discussion. During the craze of this year's election, Mitrano has been working to translate all of the media attention, party affiliation, territories, and voter eligibility into art. Based on a "baffling and convoluted" process, Mitrano says, the art series attempts to make everything a little simpler and more accessible.

"Primary Caucus" will be on display Friday, July 1, at Visual Studies Workshop, 31 Prince Street. 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Free. A potluck lawn picnic and performances will be held throughout. vsw.org; rayraymitrano.com.
