ART SHOW FAST APPROACHING...
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 7TH.
THE IRON GIANT PROJECT
IN-STORE ART DISPLAY WILL GO UP
in our gallery space.
Stop by and have a look.
* you can find directions to the shop here.
This is a tribute art show by artists from around the world that are also fans of this fantastic film, that never really got the attention or financial success that it deserved.
Brad Bird, Tony Fucile and hundreds of talented artists worked on this fantastic film. This art show is a tribute to them. It's a way for the artists who are participating to say - thanks for inspiring us.
The deadline for submitting artwork is this coming Monday November 2ND. If you have a last minute urge to join, please do the work and email us. our email: firstname.lastname@example.org
On Sunday November 8Th - the Iron Giant Project website (here) will post all of the submissions along with links to the artists that did the pieces. This website will remain up for all Iron Giant fans to enjoy. You can see a few images now, but for the rest you will have to wait for the 7Th if you come by the store, or the 8Th if you are looking on-line.
Since many of the pieces are digital, we have gotten submissions from around the world including India, England, South America, The United States and more. Proof, at least to us that Iron Giant really did touch artists all over the globe.
The in-store display will remain until November 30Th.
