Everyone knows about the insane art and comix collection of our own local legend Larry Reid, curator and manager of the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery.

But do you know about his other secret obsession? … I'll give you a clue. It rhymes with "nascar," and, um, it's NASCAR.

The Wright Exhibition Space in Seattle has blown Larry's cover with their latest exhibition Collecting: Art is a Slippery Slope, a look at what art collectors, dealers, and artists themselves collect when they're not collecting, y'know, art. Everything from folding chairs to mixers are on display alongside Larry's auto-racing lunchboxes and model kits.

The Wright Exhibition Space is located at 407 Dexter Avenue North in Seattle. The exhibit runs through May 26th, and is free.

And it's free to visit Larry at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110.
