The 6th annual Wes Anderson art exhibition, “Bad Dads,” a pop-up show featuring 70 different artists drawing upon the inspiration of Wes Anderson’s films, will be enticing New Yorkers to the Joseph Gross Gallery in Chelsea next weekend. The highly anticipated 3 day show isn’t just your average exhibit, it’s also a reason to don a costume; one of the reasons we recommend you go.
If you ever needed an excuse to dress up like your favorite Wes Anderson character, wait no more. You won’t be the only guest viewing the Wes Anderson inspired artwork, from paintings to woodwork, dressed up like a figment of his imagination. Put on your black eyeliner, favorite tan-colored fur coat, vintage polo dress, and a clip in barrette to go as Margot from the Royal Tenenbaums. Better yet, dress up as Steve Zissou from the Life Aquatic with a red beanie, blue button up shirt, trousers, and all. Or best, go as the enigmatic director himself… in an unforgettable suit.
Whether you decide to play dress up or not, we just recommend you get tickets to go. Who knows if this will be the last time this once a year event happens. If you’re a collector, you can expect to see original sculpture and painting pieces, as well as limited edition prints by a wide range of artists from all over the world. But, even if you just go to peruse the exhibition and rub elbows with New Yorkers dressed like Wes Anderson characters… it’s bound to be an interesting event!
