First-ever Mingering Mike art exhibit

Man, this warms my heart on a cold day. You may recall last year's BoingBoing posts (one, two) about a self-taught artist and soul-funk performer named "Mingering Mike," whose work was discovered by crate-diving youngsters at a flea market near DC. After Mike's work made the rounds on a vinyl junkie message board, and BoingBoing, and other blogs, a NYT article followed, and so did attention from art institutions. Now, he's got a website -- and a forthcoming musem debut for his hand-painted album covers. Kick ass!
