 Declare your independence from normal and pledge allegiance to the great state of freakdom at Northside’s Thunder-Sky Inc. More than 60 freak flags by artists from around the region and around the world — of all ages, races, beliefs and abilities — will be hung inside and outside the gallery. It’s a salute to the legacy of construction clown artist Raymond Thunder-Sky, the downtown figure lovingly remembered as “his own personal freak-flag parade.” Participants include Frederic Bonin-Pissarro, Cedric Michael Cox, Pam Kravetz, Thunder-Sky artist-in-residence Antonio Adams and former CityBeat contributor Matt Morris. Opening reception 6-10 p.m. A few freaks will be carrying their flags in the neighborhood’s Fourth of July parade. Through Aug. 11. 4573 Hamilton Ave., Northside. 513-823-8914, raymondthundersky.org.
