There’s a closing performance tonight at 8 pm for artist Will Lemon III’s exhibit Parcival Versus The Sun at the Eighth Veil gallery. Using pop culture and religious history, the body of work examines Parcival’s famed quest for the Holy Grail. “Lemon creates an elaborate setting in which the re-contextualized Parcival journeys with his audience through both physical and visceral spheres of sight, sound, and smell.”FILM*
