Joe Grillo & Kenny Scharf

AM recently attended the opening of Kenny Scharf & Dearraindrop’s Hot Glue Hullabaloo at The Hole Gallery. The collaborative show between Kenny and the Virginia Beach collective was a logical one – both are known for their creative and colorful approaches to create works outside the box. Kenny transformed the inside of The Hole into a replica of the “cosmic cavern” from his home which has the effect of transported viewers back to the happy and trippy days of the 60’s & 70’s. Derraindrop chimed in with unique works created from many their childhood toys and also made interactive instruments for viewers to play. This is the last week of the show so you should take time to make it out to the gallery and while you’re at it, walk a few blocks to check out Kenny’s mural.
