A Hunt For Pokemon (and Art) at the Fair

Houston art writer Robert Boyd has been an avid Pokemon Go player, posting his finds to his social media accounts since the game launched this summer. He visited the Texas Contemporary Art Fair on Saturday, and found that even an art fair has its Pokemon finds.

Honestly, we have no idea what any of this means.
