Gallery 1988 in Venice is opening their big Pee Wee Herman-themed art show tonight. “I Know You Art But What Am I?” features more than 80 artists paying tribute to the bow-tied giggler. I once bought a piece from one of their Crazy 4 Cult shows, which are inspired by offbeat movies of the ’70s, ‘80s and 90s. Watch for that show – it’s great. The Macy’s Parade nightmare and the all Pee Wee little league team are both pretty creepy, but I could totally see Jason Liwag’s Captain Carl on my walls. Go! Who knows? Maybe some friends from the Playhouse will show up at tonight’s opening!
