We love both H.P. Lovecraft and fun art openings. So when Dylan Thuras of Atlas Obscura told us he was curating a Cthulhu-centric art show in Brooklyn, we bellowed a hearty "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!"
The show — A Love Craft: Art Inspired by Monsters, Madness and Mythos — opens at Observatory on Friday, June 11th at 7:00 PM. Here's the show's description:
The "cosmic horror" of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, all written between 1917 and 1935, has become more popular and seemingly more contemporary with each year. OBSERVATORY and Dylan Thuras are excited to announce "A LOVE CRAFT: " a group show of art inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, and the themes of monsters, madness and mythos. On view from June 11th through July 26th, prepare to look beyond space and time and into vistas of a new reality…
