What is POPzilla’s POPcade? I’m glad you asked.
POPcade is POPzilla‘s 5th art show event, featuring over 70 artists, with more than 120 brand new original video game inspired pop art. As one of the curators of POPzilla, we have learned a lot from putting on our past shows, such as Rat Trap, SteamPOP, DUOS and MegaMou$e. Each time we do a show we make it better and bigger, and with POPcade, I don’t want to say we nailed it, but WE NAILED IT.
But don’t take my word for it, come down to Anaheim’s Rothick Art Haus on May 10th, between 6pm – 10pm to see for your self. As usual, there is no cover to get into the POPcade show. Be there for the “somewhat” family friendly opening night reception as we “Press Start” on Orange County’s largest celebration of video game pop art. We will be offering free art print contests throughout the night for best costume, best POPzilla social media plug, and other random contests we haven’t thought of yet.
Each POPzilla show we do takes a theme we are passionate about and mashes it up with endless pop culture references. I like to think it is what we are known for. And this show features almost every art medium from paintings to sculpture, photography and digital. The show runs for a month at Rothick Art Haus, (please check hours). For more information please see our Facebook Event page.
I didn’t think it was humanly possible but our next show in November promises to be even more exciting. Look for more information on ‘the BURTON show” over the summer. We will pay tribute to the many films of Tim Burton through pop art in this tribute show. If you, or someone you know is interested in becoming an artist in future shows, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include some of your art samples and place “Art consideration/BURTON” in the subject.
But in the mean time, as we wait for POPcade to open it’s doors, you can get a sneak peek of the entire show as we do an online “collector’s preview” of the entire gallery. This is for anyone who wishes to get there hands on some art before the public has a chance to. Look for that online store to be featured on THIS website, Friday May 9th from 9pm – 9:30pm. You want more? OK, here are some more teasers from the show, enjoy. See you at the show.
