John O'Brien http://kcur.org en A Final Opening At The Dolphin http://kcur.org/post/final-opening-dolphin <p>It was only fitting that one of the pioneers of the Crossroads Arts District would announce on a First Friday, May 3, that after two decades, his gallery would close. John O’Brien moved the Dolphin from the Crossroads to the West Bottoms five years ago. But now he says it’s time for something new.
