Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Traveling Art Exhibit Opens Saturday

Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Traveling Art Exhibit Opens Saturday

Gallery 1988 has announced a massive traveling art exhibit to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Ghostbusters! The legendary comedy starring Bill Murray, Dan Akyroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, and Rick Moranis gets the full Gallery 1988 treatment with more than 70 artists contributing original works inspired by the film. The exhibit kicks off in New York City this Saturday night, from 7-10 PM at 69 Leonard St., near the famous firehouse from the film.

A majority of the artwork will ONLY BE AVAILABLE by attending one of the galleries in-person. A very small allotment of prints has been set aside for each city, with a smaller selection at our final Comic Con stop. This is the ONLY way to purchase this artwork. There will be small surprises at each stop as well.

A commemorative series of special 30th Anniversary screenprints will be available in limited amounts online, in addition to in-store, at ghostbusters30th.com. These will be released sporadically over the next month. This set consists of prints from Mike Mitchell (above), Phantom City Creative, Anthony Petrie, Tom Whalen, Tara McPherson, Dan Mumford, Dave Perillo, Lora Zombie, Godmachine, Rich Kelly (select cities), Mark Englert, DKNG and Joshua Budich.

There will also be very small amounts of collaborative t-shirts from LRG, Johnny Cupcakes, Homage & Rebel8 at each stop.

The New York Ghostbusters gallery opens Saturday, April 19th, with an opening reception from 7-10 PM. The exhibit will be open everyday through April 26th, from 11-7 PM. Our next stop is Gallery1988 (West) in Los Angeles on May 17th. Keep an eye on Gallery 1988's Facebook page for further details.
