Good Intentions: Re-Imagining Rockwell’s Boy Scouts was a group exhibition presented at SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS, curated by me (Andrew Pogany) and Gagosian Gallery archivist Ben Lee Ritchie Handler. The exhibition ran from June 22 to July 20, 2013 and featured original works by local artists who sought to re-examine a selection of Norman Rockwell’s Boy Scout illustrations in meaningful, provocative, and socially relevant ways.
The exhibit received overwhelmingly positive reviews from L.A. Weekly, KCET Artbound, and KCRW’s Which Way L.A.?
Here’s the Which Way L.A.? broadcast:
Contributing artists include: Eric Beltz, Alison Blickle, Erin Burrell, Kime Buzzelli-Hosford, Scott Marvel Cassidy, Tofer Chin, Alika Cooper, Noah Davis, Frohawk Two Feathers, Club Paint (Erin Allen, Keith Boadwee, Isaac Gray), Liz Craft, Melissa Huddleston, Benjamin Lord, Lewis Mauk, Davida Nemeroff, Duane Paul, Vanessa Prager, Fay Ray, Christine Wang, and Eric Yahnker.
Programming for Good Intentions was held in conjunction with Free Arts for Abused Children (FreeArts.org), a national non-profit that provides arts programs to children who have experienced abuse, neglect, poverty, and homelessness. Net proceeds from the sale of artwork and catalogues will be donated to Free Arts.
I also managed the production, design, and printing of the Good Intentions Catalog & E-Book Bundle, which can be found at Pacific Stacks.
