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.
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.
