On The Road With The Mars Volta

A few weeks ago, my wife and I went out for an anniversary dinner at our favorite restaurant, which happens to be in a small town that homes an expensive private school. The community was having their annual art weekend, where they close off the main street and some of the local artists stop by to sell their wares and others are content with doing chalk art on the road itself.

Some of the images are quite spectacular, but one caught my eye because of the musical imagery. Evidently, an artist at Cornell University likes the band the Mars Volta so much that they did a portrait of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala.
No, it’s not “art inspired by the music of the Mars Volta,” its “art inspired by the creative force of the Mars Volta, regardless of how ugly they look.”

And here’s a picture of the quail dinner that I had.

Which one is the art?
