"I’m a colossal Bill Murray fan, so I think this is a subject a lot of people can get behind. He’s just one man but there’s a thousand facets," Croft said, adding that Ghostbusters may be his favorite Murray film.
Croft, who lives in LA and owns Oddville Studios, has curated art shows in the Bay for years with his wife Julia, and has solicited work for the show from artists through Craigslist, Tumblr, and Reddit.
"We tried to spread it out to every part of the globe. We’re getting stuff from Vienna, from the UK, and are trying to get art from countries where Bill Murray is an obscure American actor," Croft said.
Jon Schnepp, a producer and cartoonist on Metalocalypse and The Venture Bros, will make a piece for the Bill Murray event. The show will also feature artists from the Bay and closer to home. Reno-based artist Heather Carpenter is making a piece specifically for the show.
