Last night saw the opening of the Bill Murray art show, Bill You Murray Me?
Featuring work by Vancouver artists and non-artists, the exhibit was already a rousing success shortly after doors opened at 7; the FALL Gallery was already becoming packed with art-appreciators, Murray fans and the artists themselves. In all, over 150 submissions came in, ranging from poetry to short stories to a boot to a life-size Steve Zissou mannequin.
Perhaps what was most surprising was how much really accomplished, great-looking pieces there were in the show. Much of the art was on sale, anywhere from $60 to $250.
Curator Christina Chant confirmed the work will be on display for at least two more weeks, possibly three. For July of this year, she’s planning a Spice Girls-themed show.
