Where: The 5+5 Gallery in Dumbo, Brooklyn
What: Last night's opening of "Targets & Etchings," artist Brian Kenny's first-ever solo show in New York City. (He and his boyfriend Slava Mogutin also create art together as SUPERM.) The show includes old police-shooting targets that Brian and collaborators have wildly transformed with their own illustrations of weapons, body parts, bling and much more.

He's not only an artist, he's a rock star!
