No one likes a doctor's office waiting room. Artists Marguerite Perret, Bruce Scherting, Robin Lasser and James Stone simulate the experience without the what's-wrong-with-me dread in their exhibition, the Drop-In Pop-Up Waiting Room Project, at KU's Spencer Museum of Art (1301 Mississippi, Lawrence, 785-864-4710). "We are exploring our health-care system, embracing the collective viewpoint and visualizing or sonifying that data as a bridge to involve people," Lasser says. See for yourself. Drop-In Pop-Up features a "talking table" in a downstairs waiting room with sound bites from health-care professionals. At an interactive kiosk upstairs, responses from a survey that visitors receive upon entry are shared. Admission is free. See
