From paintings of your favorite TWIN PEAKS characters to paper mache’d nitrous tanks, we’re looking for anything that celebrates the filmography of one of America’s greatest living filmmakers.

The opening reception will be held on Wednesday, October 9 from 6-9 PM and will be on view for all PhilaMOCA events through the end of the month. Please note that acceptance into the art show does not grant artists admission to the November 2 Lynch-related event.

Literally, There’s a Shiny New Building at 10th & Buttonwood – OCF Realty

View from the south
