Art Heist

Summary


Gallery owner Miles Bryson, wishing to honor Chicago-based street artist WhereWolf, curates a posthumous retrospective of his provocative ouevre. Unfortunately for Miles (and his patrons), the show's opening reception is infiltrated by a band of armed robbers intending to "liberate" the late artist's work.

ART HEIST is a hilarious send up of the commercialization of street art that will (literally!) take you hostage. As Abraham Werewolf's first foray into promenade theatre, ART HEIST marks a continued commitment to bring challenging and experimental new works to the Chicago storefront scene.
 
ART HEIST was performed at Miles Bryson Gallery (2866 N Milwaukee) June 7-30, 2012.

Written by Alberto Mendoza. Directed by Nathan Green. Music by David Barron.

The show featured art by Marissa Lamour Dorman, Sierra Dufault, Chad Kouri, Jawsh Lambo, Brian Manly, Brian Rad, Mike Ruggirello, Amanda Specht, Josh Sampson, and Zack Shornick.
