Well Hung | Walton Ford at Paul Kasmin

For even fancier, larger "school charts," pop to Paul Kasmin for the opening of Walton Ford's new show tonight (runs until December 23).

(Last night at the show, my friend introduced me to Artforum publisher Knight Landesman who in turn introduced me to...Walton Ford!  We chatted taxidermy.  He doesn't have any.  But that's ok, because the Museum of Natural History lets him come in and sketch from the archives, he said.  Of course!  The show was pretty incredible. If you haven't seen Ford's paintings in real life, you must.  They're absolutely epic wall-sized beauties).
