Rock 'n' Roll Art

So ... thanks to Stella (see comments under the previous post,) we know that the answer to the trivia question buried in yesterday's post is: Dan Mulholland, local bon vivant, fashion plate and frontman extraordinaire for legendary Ann Arbor bands, including The Urbations, The Watusis, etc.

But here's something more. Dan's a really gifted collage artist and he currently has 20 or so of his pieces on display -- and for sale -- at the Ugly Mug coffee shop at the corner of Cross and Hamilton Streets.

Dan's work collides hot-rod culture, rock 'n' roll and Art Deco design into intriguing pieces that we think are pretty cool. Cool enough, anyways, that we have several hanging in our home.

Stop by and check it out and have a cup of the Ugly Mug's fine, roasted-on-site coffee.
