PhilaMOCA is hosting the eighth annual installment of its critically-acclaimed ERASERHOOD FOREVER exhibit – an artistic celebration of the work of David Lynch. From paintings of your favorite TWIN PEAKS characters to paper mache’d nitrous tanks, we’re looking for anything that celebrates the filmography of one of America’s greatest living filmmakers.
The opening reception will be held on Wednesday, October 9 from 6-9 PM and will be on view for all PhilaMOCA events through the end of the month. Please note that acceptance into the art show does not grant artists admission to the November 2 Lynch-related event.
Karen Bruhin and I are proud to have been selected — along with a large number of our beloved local photography peers — to exhibit our work in Philly Reveal!
The exhibit is from July 22 – September 13 and will be featured in the Art Gallery at City Hall, Room 116, as well as the two display cases on the first floor.
A reception date is TBD.
PhilaMOCA’s annual David Lynch-themed celebration, further details released this summer.
