PhanArt has announced their latest Phish-inspired art show, called Skyscraper is Grand, will be held on Jan. 2 in the Gold room at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City.
The show will feature a wide variety of artists selling merchandise ranging from posters to pins to hats to sunglasses. The artists represented include The Art of Ryan Kerrigan, Isadora Bullock, Uncle John’s Outfitters and John Warner Studios. Pin makers Pin Me Down, Zenster Designs, Andrew Bryant, 10 Minute Tube Designs and Solomon Productions will be in attendance with a selection of their work, including designs specifically made for Phish’s New Year’s run and Mexico shows. First-time exhibitors include You Enjoy My Shades and His End Was the Road. They will have clothing, pins, patches and sunglasses with them.
The Mockingbird Foundation, the non-profit organization associated with Phish.net, will sell prints from the third edition of their Phish Companion, the ultimate guide to the band and their music. Artists represented in the book include David Welker, DKNG, AJ Masthay and Justin Helton.
Setting the tone for the show will be a playlist curated by Wyllys.
