Intestinal Fortitude

“Intestinal Fortitude” was purchased and installed in February of 2009 from the Oklahoma City Public Art Competition where it had been on display at the Oklahoma City Municipal Building from October 2007-September 2008. It was commissioned by Connie Mashburn in honor of her son, Mike, and sits at the South May entrance to the YMCA in Oklahoma City. Slack describes his art as “primitive inspired art with a modern spin and a touch of humor.” He encourages his viewers to “sum up my art and titles with their own perspectives on the work” because interpretation is what makes art unique and interesting.
