It Don't Gitmo Better!

Wander down to Coney Island and you may see a Grindhouse booth dubbed The Waterboard Thrill Ride, created by artist Steve Powers of the Creative Time Public Art Forum. For a mere dollar, you can check out his take on the torture at Guantanamo Bay with automatons as participants. The exhibit will be in Coney Island until Sept. 15, then it will move to the Park Avenue Armory as part of Creative Time's Democracy in America exhibit. Pretty powerful stuff.

(Note: Those who are sensitive to harsh language might want to mute the audio.)
