Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Art Tour

Who you gona call when you need to celebrate Ghostbusters 30th anniversary with a multi-city art tour?? Gallery1988 of course! Theyve handpicked 70 artists to make original work, as well as limited prints/shirts, that will travel over the next few months from: New York, to Los Angeles, then Chicago, and will end up at San Diego Comic Con.

There are a ton of great moments and iconic imagery to choose to highlight from this movie. The devil dogs were almost a given for me, since they creeped me out as a kid. Gozer is also pretty impactful, especially for only being on screen for a few short minutes.

I wanted the frame to be distinctly themed to the movie as well. I took some architectural elements from the building in the final scene, and pieced it together from about 60-70 pieces of handcut wood, then finished it off with a faux-stone paint job.

The show is currently showing in NY until April 26, and then will move on to the subsequent cities. The schedule can be found at Ghostbusters30th.com.
