CentralTrak presents The Paintings of George W Bush*
On April 5, 2014, George W. Bush's first public art exhibition will be celebrated at his presidential library and museum in Dallas. The artists' residency and art space known as CentralTrak, will present a companion exhibition. To honor the former president's artistic achievements, artist/curators Morehshin Allahyari and Julie McKendrick have organized a collaboration with “Children of Artemis - Sketch Cult” – a regularly assembled group of Dallas-based artists at CentralTrak who make art in a communal setting.
The exhibition will feature faithful reproductions of George W. Bush’s paintings by the "Children of Artemis," as well as a personal appearance by George W. Bush* (a George W. Bush look-alike), who will be available to pose for photographs and answer questions about his inspirations, techniques and future artistic projects. Attendees are encouraged to add to the celebratory mood with creatively-themed costumes such fluffy bath-time robes or amateur painter's smocks or even attend the event as a presidential pooch or kitty cat.
