Sometimes art is great, and sometimes it stinks, but it’s always easy to figure out when you listen to the Navel Gaze.

Welcome to the podcast that takes the tinkle out of fine art. Angela Sawyer and Ken Green visit museums, galleries, statues, and other high-fallutin’ spots around New England and then tell you what’s good and bad about it.
