“The Last Panda” by Rob Pruitt
May 8, 2013 was a special night in New York as there was the opening of the first new Jeff Koons exhibit in a decade in New York but also a one night pop up exhibit of “The Last Panda” by Rob Pruitt. The exhibit took place at 436 West 15th Street in a building that looked like it had been abandoned for quite a while. It was pitch black inside the space save for a light towards the back of the building that shone on 2 works by Rob Pruitt.

Apparently the first 100 guests got free T-shirts and ice-cream but I was getting my Jeff Koons on so I missed it. But I am glad I saw the art because I love Rob Pruitt.

Dickchicken Noodle Soup
There’s nothing more patriotic on the 4th of July than to be looking on Twitter to see that Dickchicken left America a present. He placed 18 limited edition cans of Dickchicken Noodle Soup in front of Rob Pruitt’s “The Andy Monument” at the entrance to the former Factory (which is now a Petco) in Union Square in New York.

When I arrived on the scene, another Dickchicken fan was also there to claim his free art. I couldn’t help sticking around to watch the reaction from people passing by and I heard comments like “Why are they giving away free cans of soup?”

It’s hard to make out from these pictures, but the cans Dickchicken left behind are jumbo sized. Respect! By the time this post is up, the cans are likely to be gone, so hopefully you got one in time. I sure did! Thanks to Dickchicken for making this the best 4th of July ever!

The Andy Monument by Rob Pruitt.
Artist Rob Pruitt is paying tribute to Andy Warhol at the former site of Warhol’s Factory in Manhattan. Entitled “The Andy Monument,” the sculpture will be on display until October 2, 2011 at the corner of 17th and Broadway in New York City. In case you were wondering, the former location for The Factory is now a Petco! Ugh!

I love artist Rob Pruitt’s work so much! If you are unfamiliar with it, check out a few photos from his exhibit “Pattern and Degradation.” After viewing, I’m sure you’ll be as big a fan as I am. Rob Pruitt is currently featured in a collaborative project at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise in New York called “Bed Bugs.” The exhibit also features the work of Nate Lowman in conjunction with Maccarone Inc. Rob was not crazy about taking a photo with me, but he did oblige and I got the chance to tell him how much I love his work, which definitely made my day! Thanks again Rob! I really appreciate it.

Pattern and Degradation by Rob Pruitt. Now showing at Gavin Brown's Enterprise in NYC Through October 23, 2010
I’ve been a fan of Rob Pruitt’s work for a long time and when I heard about “Pattern and Degradation,” his latest exhibit at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, I knew it was going to be cool. I had no idea it was going to be one of my favorite exhibits of the year. The exhibit has so much going on – from T-shirts, to paintings, a room full of tires that have been turned into candy dishes, to a wall of emails (that has to been seen to be believed) as well as “mix and match” canvases of the artist himself. Realize for each picture you are going to see, there are multiple variations of each theme in the exhibit. Also note that each work is really large, so you’re really in for a treat when you see these works with your own eyes. You’d be foolish to miss this!
