I have never seen Adventure Time, so I have no idea what to say about the fact that Mondo is doing an Adventure Time gallery show in Austin. I can say that I have been to Mondo's new gallery space and it is AWESOME, and if you're in the area you should go. People I follow on Twitter who know Adventure Time are hyper psyched about this show, so I assume that Adventure Time is yet another cool thing I'm missing out on. I'll never know!
There will also be an Adventure Time marathon at the Alamo, complete with food inspired by the show. If I lived in Austin I would totally come to that to see what the fuss is all about.
Here's the press release:
Austin, TX--- Thursday, April 12, 2012 ---Mondo, the collectible art boutique arm of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, is pleased to announce its second gallery event on Friday, April 27 featuring original artwork and posters inspired by the Emmy®-nominated animated Cartoon Network comedy series Adventure Time. Paired with the themed gallery show Mondo will host an Adventure Time Marathon Screening and Feast at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar on Saturday, April 28 with series creator Pendleton Ward and Tom Kenny, the voice actor extraordinary who provides the voice of the Ice King, in attendance.
Mondo artists have mined the imaginative, funny and bizarre world of Adventure Time, Cartoon Network's breakout smash hit comedy series for their next gallery event. The opening show will take place on Friday, April 27 at the Mondo Gallery and will feature a collection of 40 pieces of original art and posters from 31 talented artists to take viewers on a journey to the post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo. The gallery will be on display through May 26.
Then, on Saturday, April 28 Mondo will welcome Ward and Kenny to the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar for a Marathon Screening and Feast. Alamo Executive Chef John Bullington has created a menu inspired by the series. Attendees will enjoy items like the "Everything Burrito", "Wizard Rainbow Dogs", "Decorpsinator Puffs" and "Meatman Meat" while Finn and Jake take on the Ice King over the course of 10 Adventure Time episodes. It's sure to be an algebraic evening.
