A One-Day Art Show Dedicated to Kurt Russell Is Opening in San Francisco
On Saturday, August 27, fans of Snake Plissken, Jack Burton, and R.J. MacReady can feast their eyes on Kurt Russell Deep Cuts—the first ever art exhibition dedicated exclusively to the actor’s lengthy career. Gizmodo reports that the exhibit will run for just one day at The Public Works in San Francisco.
The free show will feature original artwork inspired by Russell’s performances in The Thing (1982), Death Proof (2007), Escape From New York (1981), The Hateful Eight (2015), and more. Fans can attend the event just to view the pieces, or to purchase their own limited edition posters and prints. While much of the art re-creates the bright visual style of Russell’s most famous '80s films, other works—like an illustration of the actor’s ever-evolving hairstyles—are more impressionistic. As art lovers mingle amongst renderings of Russell, DJs will spin soundtracks from his films, making the event a fully immersive audiovisual ode to his long and illustrious career.
