CINCINNATI -- You might know him best as the mind that created the song "Whip It." Or maybe you're more familiar with Mark Mothersbaugh's collaborations with director Wes Anderson.

But "Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia," an exhibit opening Friday at the Contemporary Arts Center, shows there's much more behind the artist and his signature glasses.

The CAC has a lifetime of Mothersbaugh's work -- from tens of thousands of daily postcard drawings dating back to the 1970s to the world's largest ruby crystal, carved into a swirl of custard.

Cincinnati also played a critical role in the start of Mothersbaugh's career: The first Devo album was pressed here.
