There's a totem pole made of plastic chicken nuggets and onions with eyes rising up to ACME Gallery's ceiling right now. Artist Michael Decker made it and he embedded duck-head umbrella handles into blocks of wood. They stand upright throughout the gallery, peeking over other works of art in ACME's group show "Dirty Funk," such as the squished, prone boy Samara Golden made out of aluminum and bronze, or the dreamy cowboy Paul Heyer painted on silk. I'm not sure where the show's title came from, but I hope it's that fluffy, funny Steve Appleton song: "I say, I'm feelin' it, feelin' the dirty funky stuff that we're dealin' with." 6150 Wilshire Blvd.; through Aug. 11.
