Alyssa Tolentino, 18, came all the way from Chicago to see the South Korean male pop group EXO perform in Los Angeles this weekend. But before the show, she gave a performance of her own at the KCON convention Saturday at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. Taking the stage during a midday talent contest, she donned a rubber horse mask and worked through dance moves she had picked up from a music video.

Miniature golf courses qualify as kitsch, certainly. Nostalgia, probably. But art? A squad of Chicago artists have designed a playable indoors course that replaces the usual picaresque windmills and fantasy castles with earthquakes, wrecked cars, black holes and nuclear destruction. The nearly life-size course--playable at $2 a round--is also an art exhibit titled "Par Excellence!" at a warehouse-sized gallery of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago through Aug. 20.
