'Cause it'd now finally be old enough to drive a car if it lived on a farm, Wet Hot American Summer is getting an entire art show inspired by its weird summer camp-parodying steez at pop-culture artspace Gallery 1988, including a Thursday night screening of the film, and a Friday night opening party hosted by the director, who doesn't care that you're bowlegged and bilingual. Artists include:
Casey Weldon: A Brooklyn-based SoCal native, CW painted a montage of all of the film's couples sticking their tongues down each other's throats, including future stars like Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Banks, and future, um, well, hmmmm... Janeane Garofalo.
Who Shot JR does up wrinkly, cartoonish portraits of characters including Neil and Victor, and describes his style as "I paint lumpy people", an obvious publicity stunt to try and gain Val Kilmer's attention.
Ryan Jones: Quite possibly the son of Tom Jones is displaying his painting of the infamous talking can of mixed vegetables, which was actually voiced by the dude who does Sterling Archer and the dad in Bob's Burgers, which is also apparently a show.
