FELIX THE CAT
Cats Out Of The Bag
Opening Reception: May 8, 2015 6-10PM
Exhibition Dates: May 8 - May 30 2015
A simply drawn black and white cat may seem an unlikely choice for the world’s first cartoon superstar, but Felix, with his magical bag of tricks and killer personality, was no ordinary feline. Though Felix has gone through numerous iterations over the near decade since his debut, he has always had an undeniable influence on creatives around the world, no matter their age or medium. This has never been more evident than in “Felix The Cat: The Cat’s Out Of The Bag”, a group art show curated by Slow Culture gallery. The Highland Park outfit gathered nearly 40 members of their creative community and tasked them with creating a piece of work that embodied the world famous cartoon cat. This stable, which includes fine artists, cartoonists, street artists, creative directors, tattoo artists, and more, jumped at the chance to pay homage to a figure that had for many of them made an indelible impact on their art.
