You are all invited to "Kingdom Animalia"
a group show I'm co-curating with artist Joey Remmers in LA on June 29th. This show is special to me because all
profits (after the artist gets paid of course!) goes to support Big Life Foundation, an anti-poaching organization that is near and dear to my heart and doing really outstanding an effective work. Press release after the image. Clap your peepers on that artist roster. James Jean will be doing a limited edition print available at the opening party (and it will be a PARTY- thank you Landrover!) as well!
Land Rover Anaheim Hills
Group Art Exhibition to benefit Big Life Foundation
Curated by Joey Remmers and Kirsten AndersonFriday, June 29th 7pm – 10pmAnimals play many roles in our world; Muses, symbols, companions, talking creatures and moral teachers. From the lowly jackal to the regal lion, from literature to art to social culture and how we interpret animal behavior in human terms and draw moral conclusions. Kingdom Animalia aims to explore how artists use and view animals to inspire, think and create.
The show will be exhibited at Land Rover Jaguar of Anaheim Hills in CA with an exclusive and festive opening reception taking place on June 29th, 2012. ALL proceeds from the show will be donated to the Big Life Foundation as well as a portion of the proceeds of any Land Rover vehicles sold from the Anaheim Hills location the evening of the event. All curation, installation, and sponsorship is happily donated, because really...who wants to live in a world without majestic creatures such as elephants, rhinos, and all of the other creatures that our part of our global heritage?
