For those who are still desperately waiting to get schwifty again with the universe’s most insane grandfather and grandson duo, we have something to hold you over.

This past weekend, Gallery 1988 opened a special Rick and Morty artwork exhibition, and all of the artwork is now online for you to check out yourself. There are even some pieces that are still available for purchase. Read More »

Raising Arizona Print

Even though we’re big fans of all the collectible artwork that Mondo throws out there for us to plaster our walls with, we also love what comes out of Gallery 1988. Personally, I have several pieces from their Ghostbusters 30th anniversary exhibition on my wayy, and I’m always on the lookout for their next great print series. And a very interesting new one has just been revealed.

Gallery 1988 has announced a new series called Friends of the Gallery, pairing up what they call some of their “most creative gallery buyers” with some of their favorite gallery artists to collaborate on a special limited edition piece of work. The first in this series comes by way of Robot Chicken creator and actor Seth Green teaming up with artist Joshua Budich, and they’ve decided to bring a Raising Arizona print to the table.

We’re just under a month from the release of the long-awaited comedy sequel Zoolander No. 2 (or 2oolander), and in honor of the beloved comedy, Gallery 1988 has opened a fantastic new gallery show. Paying tribute to the original Zoolander starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell, the Melrose art gallery has put together an exhibition of works called the Really, Really, Really, Ridiculously Good Looking Art Show.

Star Wars The Art Awakens

We’re heading into the home stretch of waiting for Star Wars: The Force Awakens with just over a month left until the film hits theaters on December 17th. And along with the onslaught of TV spots that will be arriving to help promote the film, there will be plenty of other Star Wars events and promotions, like Gallery 1988’s The Art Awakens show.

The exhibition opened last night with a slew of new artwork from over 60 artists, paying tribute to the original Star Wars trilogy (with some influence from the prequels) and The Force Awakens. J.J. Abrams (seen above in a photo from our own Peter Sciretta) and Lawrence Kasdan even attended the event last night.

And for those interested, there are a couple of pieces that may provide some insight into the forthcoming sequel. Read More »

Gallery 1988 Clue artwork

This year marks the anniversary of several movies, including the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, the 40th anniversary of Jaws and the 25th anniversary of Gremlins 2: The New Batch. But there’s another film that may not be quite as celebrated, but deserves to be honored for its 30th anniversary this year: the murder mystery comedy Clue.

Based on the classic board game of the same name, the film brings to life the strange and perplexing murder mystery that keeps getting worse as the stormy night carries on. If there’s one piece of evidence to show that adapting a board game into a movie can work, it’s Clue. And Gallery 1988 is paying tribute to the movie with a collection of fantastic, original artwork.
