KAWS' first solo museum exhibit
KAWS, Chum (Red), 2009
Brian Donnelly, better known as KAWS (previously), a Brooklyn street artist gone successfully commercial (without losing that rep) announced on his personal blog that he is having his first solo museum showing at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Connecticut starting June 27 through January 2, 2011.
The project will offer a retrospective look at his well-known street art, apparel, product, and graphic designs, and debut a selection of never-before-seen paintings, sculptures, and drawings which blur the conventional boundaries between art, design, and culture.
If you’re in Connecticut, go see this. You have no excuse. What else are you going to do? Go v-neck sweater shopping? Kidding! Jokes!
