Spoke Art Previews “Bad Dads”: Their 4th Art Show Tribute To The Brilliant Films Of Wes Anderson


When something isn’t broke, why fix it.  Such is the case with the wildly popular, reoccurring art exhibit at Spoke Art Gallery called “Bad Dads.”  As many of you already know, this is a tribute show to the insanely entertaining films of Wes Anderson.

The parameters of the exhibit are quite simple, create art based off of a film by Wes Anderson. Moonrise Kingdom, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, The Fantastic Mr. Fox (one of my personal favorites!), The Darjeeling Limited and so on and so on are all up for interpretation.

Since it’s inception in 2010, Bad Dads has become a yearly tradition at Spoke Art. The exhibition, which debuts on Halloween weekend, opens to the public with a fun and free costume party, and this year they are excited to expand their show also to the Castro Theatre for a one night triple screening of Anderson’s films!

Featuring over 100 artists from around the globe, “Bad Dads” presents a diverse look at the inspiration that abounds within, and from, Anderson’s dynamic films. For this exhibit, expect a wide range of affordable and original paintings and sculpture, alongside a bevy of limited edition screen prints and posters.
