Skeletor in New York

Skeletor in New York

The charity art show I am curating, Skeletor Saves, is this Thursday in NYC from 6-10. What started off as a crazy little idea has ballooned into an event of monstrous size! We could not be more thrilled. We took an 80s cartoon icon, He-Man, and built a star-studded celebrity art show around him and his Masters of the Universe.

Some heavy hitters are involved. Designer Marc Jacobs has sketched some characters for the show. Helmut Lang’s submission is modern and the opposite of He-Man’s over-the-top imagery. Porn stars Francois Sagat and Buck Angel turned artists for the event. Add other notable gays to the mix-Casey Spooner, Joey Arias, Raja from RuPaul’s Drag Race- and you have a show that NY Magazine calls “Brilliant/Highbrow.”

Skeletor Saves!

Skeletor Saves!

I am really excited to be curating my first ever art show! Benefitting the Ali Forney Center in NYC, a homeless shelter for gay, lesbians, and trans youth, the show will feature the art of some well known folks from music, fashion, porn, and art. We’re calling it Skeletor Saves, as all the artwork must be inspired by He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, the homoerotic toy and TV series from the 1980s.

Official info on the night is below as is the list of contributors. Mark your calendars. Get some art. And help some gay kids in NYC. That a Win-Win! Info:

Skeletor Saves is a collective charity show with work from top artists based on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. All proceeds will benefit the Ali Forney Center in New York City, a shelter for homeless gay, bi and transgendered youth.

Sponsored by Slick It Up and Aaron Cobbett and curated by Brian Moylan, Bradford Shellhammer, and David Mason
