See & Do - Visual art: Polaroidland May 18 2009

Sat., May 23

OK, digital cameras are better than Polaroids. Digital photos don't cost a dollar a shot, and you can take more than 10 pictures at a time. But you can't hold a digital photo. You can't shake it for no apparent reason or leave smudgy fingerprints all over your friends' faces.

Opening reception May 23, 8 p.m.; hours by appointment. 684 John Wesley Dobbs Ave., Unit B. 770-595-4248. www.mintgallery.org.
