FIELD NOTES: Can of Bud Light treated in detailed glitter by Justin Favela during the last night of "Chop Shop," his exhibition of deconstructed art parts slightly extended to end on First Friday. In a previous post, Scenes from a Chop Shop, I mentioned there was almost an expectation to see the contents of a cooler be Justin-fied to work within his piñata party motif. The cans were there for consumption, not thematic support. Then the artist tweeted this creation. I had to see it in person.
