An Olympic Level Bad Art Show

February 9 @ 8:00 pm

THE OPENING CEREMONIES OF THE OLYMPIC BAD ART GALLERY

“THE OPENING CEREMONIES AT THE OLYMPIC BAD ART SHOW ARE AN EXTRAORDINARY AND INTRICATELY CHOREOGRAPHED EXTRAVAGANZA, FEATURING AN AMAZING EXPLOSION OF COLOR AND MUSIC, WHICH ALLOW THE HOST GALLERY SCOPE TO SHOWCASE ITS UNIQUENESS, WHILE ADHERING TO VARIOUS PROTOCOLS THAT HAVE EVOLVED SINCE THE FIRST MODERN OLYMPIC BAD ART SHOW WAS HELD IN ATHENS IN 1896.” – International Olympic Committee

The Traditional Five Elements of the Opening Ceremony:

ARTISTIC PROGRAM: this one’s easy, there’s lots of art

PARADE OF NATIONS: the beverage table will have representatives from Russia, Mexico, the Caribbean, England, Kentucky and uh, Petaluma on hand

TRADITONAL EVENTS: a representative in traditional San Francisco Mission costuming will open the ceremonies

OLYMPIC FLAME: outside on the sidewalk only, please

DOVES: seriously? doves? what do we need doves for? fine. ok. we’ll ask the DJ to play that Prince song


A whole new collection of dumpster-dived art awaits at the February 2018 edition of the MISSION B.A.G. (Bad Art Gallery). Hilarious catalog notes, paintings curated from only the finest flea markets, thrift stores and back alleys. Complimentary beverages. Radio Valencia DJs provide the soundtrack. Night Flight vids on screen. 21up.
