The Kansas City Star reports that the paintings of Lori Raye Erickson, currently on display in Kansas City, Mo., comment on the discriminatory policies of the Boy Scouts with subtle humor. Her work contrasts the hypocrisy of the Boy Scouts' ideal attributes--"trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent"--with the group's antigay rules. Erickson's paintings will be on display through October 13 at the Dolphin Gallery, 1901 Baltimore Ave.
