Cuddly Rigor Mortis has a brand new exhibit, New Friends, that we can't wait for you to see. Consisting of new paintings and prints, this collection might just be her most adorable work yet.

And, THIS FRIDAY, we'll also be celebrating the release of Ed Mironiuk's new work, Felt Cute. His felt sculptures have become a massive hit at G1988 and we expect his new pieces to sell quickly.

The Wolf House
Starts, Thursday, May14
*Pure nightmare fuel 
This could be part of Silent Hill

Based loosely on the grim case of Colonia Dignidad, a German émigré-run colony in post-WWII Chile that was revealed to have been used to imprison, torture, and murder dissidents during the Pinochet regime, The Wolf House is an animated feature film with a much darker foundation than most. As deeply disturbing as its inspiration would suggest, it is also a truly inspired feat of animation, its extraordinary craft and artistic vision fusing with its profoundly sinister themes to create an experience of exceptional power.

Catalina Island Museum's 33rd Annual Silent Film Showcase
Friday, May 15 at 1 p.m. - Mud and Sand
Saturday, May 16 at 1 p.m. - Seaside Simps
Sunday, May 17 at 1 p.m. - “The Curse of Valentino’s Ring”

The showcase will feature a screening of Mud and Sand and Seaside Simps on Facebook Live with musical accompaniment by composer and pianist Michael Mortilla. Mud and Sand is Stan Laurel’s comedic spoof on Blood and Sand, which would have been the feature film to be played during this year’s showcase. Seaside Simps was filmed on Catalina Island in 1923 and was recently restored by the Library of Congress. The museum will be the first on Catalina Island to screen it since it was originally filmed there.
