Last weekend we opened the group show “Thawed Out: Visions of the Future” at NOWhere Limited. We’ll be in the gallery this weekend so stop by and let us know what is on your mind.
The exhibit is in celebration of an annual local oddity known as “Frozen Dead Guy Days”. It seems that a deported Nederland resident made an attempt to cryogenically freeze the body of a deceased relative. Grandpa, as he is affectionately known by the sleepy mountain town, remains on dry ice in a Tuff Shed in the hills. Each year the masses flock here to enjoy festivities such as a hearse parade, polar plunge and coffin races.
Thirteen diversely talented artists round out this themed show. We requested that the artists contemplate what the world might be like when Grandpa was “Thawed Out”. Various visions of the future are represented ranging from the absurd to the sublime.
March 6-8 Nederland, Colorado is the place to be. Click here for a video of the insanity from last year.
NOWhere Limited is in the heart of the party so we will be offering sober reports from the (drunken) front lines. Friday evening the drumming of Greg Willson will fill the gallery. On Saturday at 4:30pm the Dead Bubbles will once again be turning it up to eleven.
