[....] The work [was] staged July 13 at the Ontario College of Art and Design Professional Gallery.

Dobkin, described in the release as a single lesbian mother of a one-year-old daughter, said she became interested in taboos surrounding breastfeeding. [....]

Home Boy ... Could we say he has great connections?
