Riot Fest Presents: Have Mercy! The John Stamos Art Show

Riot Fest Presents: Have Mercy! The John Stamos Art Show

New York, NY (Top40 Charts / Company) A group art show celebrating the magic of John Stamos.

Riot Fest is proud to announce HAVE MERCY! The John Stamos Art Show. The walls will be covered with paintings, drawings and sketches in tribute to one of our favorite humans: The stunning, inspiring and legendary actor/musician John Phillip Stamos. It promises to be the greatest art event ever in the history of the world!

We are putting a call out to the Riot Fest community to tap into the inspiration that Mr. Stamos has shared with all of us, and to channel it onto the canvas. The result of which will be, by all accounts, the largest collection of John Stamos-inspired artwork under one roof.

We here at Riot Fest have been paying tribute to Mr. Stamos since our 2013 festival, where we proudly commissioned and displayed a life-size bust of the man using nothing but butter and love and more butter.

While many of you got to know the actor John Stamos in the late-1900s as Blackie Parrish on General Hospital or were moved by his star-making turn as Uncle Jesse Katsopolis on Full House, many have just recently discovered his talents through roles on E.R. and Scream Queens.

The musician John Stamos has been a drummer since the age of four and has rocked out in several bands, including Blackie & The Riff Raff, The Beach Boys, and the Riot Fest booking department's perpetual white whale, Jesse & The Rippers.

The Opening Night Gala will be at Cobra Lounge on July 14th and the show will run until July 16th.

There will be a second showing of the John Stamos art at this year's Riot Fest & Carnival from September 15th-17th. The artwork will be auctioned or sold with all proceeds benefiting the charity of John Stamos' choice.

A panel of celebrity judges will be evaluating the art and awarding prizes for the best John Stamos art. Our esteemed celebrity judges will include our friends Danette Chavez and Gwen Ihnat from The A.V. Club, Nihilist Arby's, Riot Fest Twitter, Anna Cerniglia from Johalla Projects, and a very special surprise guest...

The Grand Prize First Place Best In Show winner will receive two (2) VIP passes to Riot Fest and the DVD box set of Full House. The second place winner will receive two (2) GA tickets to Riot Fest. Third place will receive one (1) GA ticket to Riot Fest.
