Featuring art inspired by the Coen brothers film “The Big Lebowski”
In 1998, Joel and Ethan Coen wrote and directed the cult classic The Big Lebowski. The film features Jeff Bridges as “The Dude” as well as John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Philip Seymour Hoffman, David Huddleston, Julianne Moore, Tara Reid, John Turturro, Sam Elliott… and don’t forget about the Nihilists. Like the Dude, well, ya, not like him at all, but anyway, Hot Art Wet City is saying “Fuck It Dude” and opening a pop-up art gallery… and FK IT DUDE is the first show!
Opening night included prizes for best costumes (including a gift certificate from Bandidas Taqueria, a bowling package from Grandview Lanes, and a DVD copy of The Big Lebowski). “Hey, this art really ties the room together.”
