The current art exhibit at Columbia College's Glass Curtain Gallery, "Axis of Evil: The Secret History of Sin," got some visitors even before it opened. Secret Service agents visited the gallery last week shortly before the show was to open, and (according to the Sun-Times' account) took pictures of some of the art on display, including some stamps designed by curator Michael Hernandez de Luna (whose stamp with the word "anthrax" shut down Chicago's main post office in 2001). In case you wanted to see what the fuss is about, "Axis of Evil" runs at the Glass Curtain Gallery through May 11.
