This is a link to a review of the show Current Tendencies at the Haggerty Museum in Milwaukee.
It talks a little bit about the drawing pictured above. Here is an excerpt from the link:
As you enter the Haggerty, you are confronted by Colin Matthes’ floor-to-ceiling wall drawing, “Winners Circle.” Brushstrokes of shiny silver ink create a chain-link fence raised high above your head to separate you from the overweight, slouching Wisconsinites blankly gazing at a colorful carnival attraction in action. Above the game’s wheel hangs a large banner declaring, “Winners Circle. The future is some of yours.” A few drawn figures stand with us on the outside of the fence gawking at the spectacle, excluded from experiences that would have probably been disappointing.

Right on, Colin. This wall drawing/mural turned out great, really nice sense of depth, drawing you in to the “big show” that ends up being empty…
