Show Notes:

The gallery’s PR department created a stick-on fuzzy unibrow to publicize its upcoming show Frida and Diego: Passion, Politics and Painting. Feminist writer Sarah Mortimer objects. We read a commentary she posted on shamelessmag.com and speak with her about the campaign and the response she’s gotten to her piece. Sarah Mortimer speaks with Redeye host Peter Driftmier.
