Jibbart Jabbart: A Mr. T-Themed Art Show and Experience

An exhibition of artwork inspired by Mr. T at PhilaMOCA

About the Event: If you grew up in the 1980s, Mr. T was a ubiquitous presence in your childhood. Whether you marveled at his driving skills and propensity to drink drugged milk on the A-Team, his menacing gaze as he stood toe-to-toe with Philly’s own Rocky Balboa, or peddled everything from lunchboxes to action figures to cereal with his face on it, Mr. T had an undeniable impact on our everyday lives. On Saturday, December 7 we’re celebrating the Man with the Gold in a themed art show and entertainment experience!

Submissions: All two-dimensional mediums welcome (no hazardous materials), no videos, sculptures or installations. Please send digital files or photos of submissions to curator Ben Leach at [email protected]. Links are preferred for six or more entries. Remember, not all submissions will be accepted.

There will be a $20 participation fee per selected piece of artwork. 100% of the proceeds from sold artwork will go to the artist.

Deadline for submissions is December 2nd, 2013.
