Last week we posted a very popular article that talked about the collaboration between The Academy and Gallery 1988. They hand picked 9 different artists to do commissioned prints for all the nominated movies in the Best Picture category. Now Gallery 1988 has issued the release schedule for the Best Picture nominee prints which they will be GIVING AWAY at their gallery on 7021 Melrose Ave.
Now there are a couple of rules to make things go as smoothly and be as fair as possible. There will be no line prior to 2 hours before each release, security enforced. There will be a sign-in sheet starting at that time. Make sure you go to the bathroom BEFORE you get in line because there is no holding places in line at any time. You will need to stay throughout, you can not leave after signing in. The prints are free, 1 per person – but you can come back for each release and get 1 of each.
You can click HERE to see the prints in all their glory. The artists chosen for this special and highly coveted project are: Matt Owen, Anthony Petrie, Rich Kelly, Mark Englert, Phantom City Creative, Jeff Boyes, Tom Whalen, Joshua Budich and Godmachine.
It all starts today at noon so I will see you there. Oh, and Happy Valentines Day as well.
