Munsell also sheds some light on the ACRE inspired exhibit at Heaven Gallery, Summer Sessions, before we dive deep into all that is ACRE. And finally, the light at the end of this illuminating tunnel, is a discussion of the dearly departed, bumper sticker bonanza, Trunk Show. All this and not a single bad word.
