Coming up early next month is the GOONIES themed art show, “This Is Our Time”, put on by Chogrin and the good people at The Autumn Society. This is also the 3rd show I have been lucky enough to be a part of with them. The 2nd one being the TMNT show that opens the day before in Philadelphia, but more on that later. As for a movie like the Goonies, over the past few years I have seen a ton of awesome art inspired from this movie. It’s great to see what scenes stick out to other artists and inspire them to pump out some amazing stuff. It has easily reached cult status and deserves all the recognition it receives. From the sound of it, this show will include a few favorites from years past that you may have seen before, and also a ton of newer pieces from Artists across the country. When combined, all of a sudden you have the best art tribute to the Goonies. Sloth would be proud.
I myself will not be able to attend this show, but I will be sending “Andy, You Goonie” and some prints up to Lunar Boy Gallery in Astoria, Oregon for the big show. I can’t wait to see what other pieces end up in this Goonies show. Big thanks to Chogrin for inviting me to be a part of this one, exciting stuff. Stay tuned for more info on this show. I’ll be looking for some good coverage of the show and share it here come June 4th.
