It’s almost a new year already agai n\, and we feel like everyone could probably use a soft reboot—so we’ll hav e some lucky artwork to get you in a positive mood (you’ll get a lucky buzz). New Year’s is a really big deal to Japanese people\, with many superstitions and customs. The end of the year is a time for leaving t he old year’s worries and troubles behind\, and the beginning of a new year is an opportunity for a fresh start. For this show\, we interpret our vers ions of luck/love/prosperity-inviting practices. We will exhibit our spins on traditional lucky icons and imagery (like lucky stars and horseshoes). O ur goal is to share cleansing energy in positive\, artful ways with visitor s to the gallery. Japanese believe that the new year should be started with laughter\, and that is also part of our idea for this show. Everyone can p articipate by writing their hopes and wishes and tying them onto a peace tr ee (well\, actually a stick sculpture)\, then send bad vibes packin’ at the “Run Devil Run” station (write “good riddance” messages and then shred the m)\; and stocking up on artist-blessed good luck charms.

\n

The gallery also houses Chicken Boy Shop\, a tiny shop that sells exclusive Chicken Boy and Highland Park merchandise\, wacky gift item s\, vintage goods\, art prints and artist-made products.
