Cleaning the "Meat Wall" at ASU Not as Dirty as It Sounds -- Or Is It?
Museum intern Aubree Jacobs brushes up Adriana Varejão's Ruina de Charque-Quina (the meat wall.)

Sheesh, not even a week after students are returning to campus at ASU and this headline shows up on the ASU Art Museum website:
"Cleaning the meat wall (yes, that says "meat wall")"
Whoa, Sin Devils, how 'bout waiting until school's in full swing before making us choke on our Chuckbox?
Turns out, the headline refers to the maintenance of a sculpture by Brazilian artist Adriana Varejão entitled, Ruina de Charque-Quina (Corner Jerked-Beef Ruin), 2003 -- or, as it's lovingly referred to by the museum, "the meat wall."
How to clean a meat wall? According to the ASU Art Museum, the meat wall needs to be cleaned regularly with a small brush and a special over-the-shoulder vacuum cleaner, particularly in those places that tend to gather dust. Also, it's a good idea to wear white gloves.
Wow. And my mom freaked out when I told her about my first kegger.
