This week on Art Hounds: Good vs. evil, the sacred and the sensual.
Duluth Art Institute's Director Anne Dugan went to the reopening of the Tweed Museum of Art, including the exhibition "All This is True. It features the political art of Sue Coe and Warrington Colescott. Dugan says that while many of the prints and paintings date back to the early '90s, their themes of oppression, war and guns seem painfully fresh today. The exhibition runs through Sept. 18.
