"Participatory art" can sound a bit high-minded, but Tex Jernigan's current exhibit at General Public Collective levels the concept into an intriguing experience. The New York City-based artist, designer, coder and photographer opened his "Revolutions" show on July 4. In addition to a series of video portraits that he created of Fountain Square residents, Jernigan made a life-size sculpture based on Jacques-Louis David's Napoleon Crossing the Alps, but left out the Bonaparte part. More than a super-sized piece, "Napoleon's Horse" gives visitors the chance to assume the emperor's position -- sword included.

If you weren't able to attend the opening (and pick up a fancy hotdog offered by the forthcoming Milktooth restaurant's crew), the show is up through July 25. The exhibit and many of the Naptown Napoleons are also available for viewing on Jernigan's Flickr page.
