From Thinkspace’s press release: “Our booth will feature a double solo presentation of represented artists Kevin Peterson and Alex Yanes, alongside the gallery’s signature wall of small-format 12" x 12" artworks by 44 members of our Thinkspace Family. Peterson, a painter based out of Houston, Texas, and Yanes, a mixed-media sculptor / painter from Miami, Florida, create work inspired by the endless potential of the cityscape. Yanes, with colorful, multi-dimensional works, informed by his love of Miami, graffiti, tattoos, and street culture, and Peterson, with hyperrealistic oil paintings that explore the psychological vicissitudes of the urban sprawl.”

#hamiltongues, A linguistic analysis of Hamilton by ToddTheLinguist
In case you missed it, here are the tweets from my week-long series about finding linguistic fun in the smash Broadway hit musical about the life of the US's first Treasury Secretary, Alexander Hamilton!

Todd Snider did a neat linguistic analysis of Hamilton on twitter and I may or may not have egged him on to put it in a storify so I could share it with you all. You’re welcome.

Check it out for examples of garden path sentences, homophones, tense, dialects, and scope restriction (plus a couple Hamilton gifs, natch).
