Lay Off Me I’m Starving: Aesthetic Responses to Chris Farley opens October 14, 2017 (opening reception 6 to 10) at Thunder-Sky, Inc. Commemorating the 20th anniversary of Chris Farley’s death (12/18/1997), “Lay Off Me I’m Starving” invites artists from the region to contemplate Farley’s legacy as bombastic, slapstick clown, perennial people-pleaser, and tragic genius. On the exact date of his passing, we will be sponsoring a reading of literary works about him, as well as screen Tommy Boy, to close the show.
Type of works: All media, whatever you come up with. (Pictured above is a portrait of Chris, by Dion Hitchings, one of the first pieces we’ve received.)
Work drop-off: October 7, 2017, 1 to 4 pm, Thunder-Sky, Inc. 4573 Hamilton Avenue Cincinnati, OH 45223. PLEASE MAKE SURE you have a legible title, name of artist, and price attached to the work.
