Huntington Arts Council Presents “Bright Colors, Bold Strokes: Creations of Lowbrow Art”. Lowbrow started as an underground visual art movement that arose in the Los Angeles, California, area in the late 1970s. It is a populist art movement with its cultural roots in underground comix, punk music, tiki culture, and hot-rod cultures of the street. It is also often known by the name pop surrealism. It continues its rich history with such publications as Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, and Carpazine. Lowbrow art often has a sense of humor — sometimes gleeful, impish, or sarcastic.
Show is juried by Benjamin Owens.
March 29 @ 9:00 am - May 4 @ 5:00 pm. Free. Reception: March 29, 6-8 pm.

Anything is a dildo, If you're Brave Enough. A group exhibition exploring the possibilities of the meme that states "Anything is a dildo, if you're brave enough". Gathered together, these sculptures are a contemporary survey of the cultural significance of the dildo, literally and through metaphor. In this show, we may witness our desires, fears, humors, rages, and rejections mirrored in the works. While not a regular topic of discussion, dildos have ever been sought or created; there is evidence of these sex-objects from pre-historic eras. In this exhibition, I invite the artists to set the stage and the viewers to bring their curiosity, to engage together in an unusual public forum framed by the idea of the dildo.
