We’ve got a sneak peak of images from the upcoming Art Shack event at the Laguna Museum. The opening night party is June 12 and tickets are still available.
Ed and the crew are putting the final touches on a “modern” remodel of the original the “Tattoo Hut” art installation that was a highlight of Hardy’s first show at Track 16 Gallery in Santa Monica,1997.
Once again, the claustrophobic structure evokes the spooky tiny tattoo parlors of the 1950s – but this time the entire design theme is of the iconic mid-20th century tattoo, the black panther. The Tat Cat Shack will transport you back into a time you never knew existed, before tattoos were part of the trendy mainstream.
Juxtapoz’ Greg Escalante is guest curating a new show that will offer viewers a look inside the homes (or ideal living spaces) from some of the world’s top artists.
Art Shack is a group exhibition in which artists such as Mark Ryden, Don Ed Hardy, Shag, and Mike Shine create experimental shack environments offering a physical immersion between our experiences of the real world and that of the artists.
Art Shack is guest curated by Greg Escalante and will be open at Laguna Museum of Art from June 13 – October 3, 2010
