Zombie Art Show and Zombie Walk information
I wanted to give you all some more information about what’s going on with the Long Beach Zombie Art Show. First things first, submissions for being in the art show are due on October 1, 2011. If you’re planning on submitting, send over jpgs of your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mondo Celluloid is organizing the Long Beach Zombie Walk and have asked myself and Garry at Phone Booth Gallery to curate a zombie art show. For those of you that remember last year, I curated the 1st zombie art show in DTLA. This kind of counts as the 2nd zombie art show but on a far more grandiose scale and with way more artists and way more cool factor! 😉
Not to mention that the Long Beach Comic-Horror Con, Zombie Walk IV, Thriller dance mob, Guinness book of records and concert will all be happening the same night!! It’s going to be apocalyptic for sure! Especially since the Zombie Art Show will be towards the end of the walk!! Don’t forget to RSVP and keep your eyes popped for more updates from Mondo Celluloid here
Here’s the official info about the event. See you all there!
