On the heels of Sean Spicer, Michael Dubke and The Mooch, we’ve got a new candidate just in case Hope Hicks doesn’t work out as President Trump’s latest communications director. It seems that Alicia Duplan, assistant director over at the Art Car Museum, has tact down pat. When we asked her about the 100 works that made it into this year’s unjuried 12th Annual Open Call Exhibition, “Trump THIS!,” Duplan said organizers were keeping things neutral and simply providing a venue for artists to express their personal opinions. “I have a feeling I’m going to be saying a lot of ‘no comments,’” says Duplan, when asked if she saw a trend either for or against Trump, though she did say it wasn’t a 50-50 split. We don’t think there will be a yellow toupee-topped art car in the show, but expect to see a colorful and creative interpretation of the state of the union.

Opening reception 7 to 10 p.m. September 9. Continuing 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. September 9 through November 17. 140 Heights Boulevard. For information, call 713-861-5526 or visit artcarmuseum.com. Free.
