Pete Wentz + Travis McCoy Art Show!
Gallery 1988 and Clandestine Industries is proud to announce, “Without You I’m Just Me,” an art show featuring the work of Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy) and Travis McCoy (Gym Class Heroes). The show will open December 9, 2008 in Los Angeles with a public reception from 6-9 and a Friends and Family VIP reception from 9-11 PM. A portion of the proceeds from “Without You I’m Just Me” will benefit Invisible Children, a charity supplying funds and supplies to those in need in North Uganda.
This exhibit will feature original artwork created by the musicians both together as collaboration, and individuals, as well as offering limited edition signed prints and a show catalogue. Wentz and McCoy spent a few weeks, living together and creating these collaborative pieces (mostly fueled by a mixed drink of Merlot and Sprite), while almost setting Pete’s house on fire. “One night I passed out only to wake up to flames at the foot of the bed,” Travis explained, “and Pete kneeling over one of the paintings with the most evil grin I’d ever seen the dude crack. The piece came out amazing to say the least.” The duo’s mixed media and graffiti inspired artwork touches on many personal subjects, ranging from the pitfalls of Hollywood to their friendship. Pete Wentz says of their friendship reflected in the work, “It’s weird. He’s like me but from the other side of Alice’s Mirror, and the work proves that.”
Don't forget that Friends or Enemies are giving you the chance to enter to win a signed copy of Pete and Travis' catalogue (most of the art from their art show in this book) signed by Mr. McCoy & Mr. Wentz respectively, as well as the iPod skin. Enter to win here!
