NYC Opening of the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Traveling Art Show

Ghostbusters Art Show

Last night, Saturday, April 19th, in New York City, just a few blocks from the Hook & Ladder 8 firehouse, Gallery 1988 opened the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary art show. Located at the Gallery 69 art space in Tribeca, the show includes an impressive amount of Ghostbusters-themed art and merchandise for sale and will be stationed in New York for a week. From here it will head to Los Angeles, then Chicago, then eventually to Comic-Con in July. Ivan Reitman's Ghostbusters was released in June 1984 and the collection of art is one of the best I've seen honoring a classic, with outstanding work from so many well-known artists.

The art show opened with a reception at 7PM and a line that went around the block. There were, of course, many fans dressed up in full Ghostbusters uniforms with proton packs, though no Ecto-1 showed up (too bad). Aside from that, it was an excellent show I highly recommend stopping by anytime while it's open. In the meantime, here's a look at a few of my photos of the event and some of my own favorites. Up first, this awesome Slimer centerpiece is one of the stars of the #gb30 show right smack in the middle of the gallery:

Here's the rest of my own photos of Ghostbusters 30th artwork that I dug - visit the gallery to see more.

I'm very fond of this fantastic painting of Ray (Dan Aykroyd) resting on the Ecto-1 by artist Sean Clarity.

Finally, this set of Slimers art by Dan Goodsell aka Mister Toast is stupendous - half set of eight below:

The rest of these shots below were found via Instagram and are not our photos of the event but are still cool:

Note: We've previously featured two different posts of artwork from this #gb30 show before, right here and here for the first batch (or just click the art below - this is the Ecto-1 by DKNG). More revealed soon.


Simply put, this is a must see show for any/all fans of Ghostbusters. The art on display and for purchase is amazing all-around, and it's fun to stop in and appreciate all the finer details of the pieces at the show. It features endless fan-fueled, geeky love for one of the best sci-fi comedy classics ever. Who you gonna call?

Gallery 1988's Ghostbusters 30th show will hit New York from April 19th-26th at 69 Leonard Street (between Church & Broadway) with an opening reception on April 19th (that's also Record Store Day) from 7pm to 10pm. A month later at Gallery 1988 (West), 7308 Melrose Avenue the show hits Los Angeles from May 17th-June 1st with the opening reception there on May 17th from 7pm to 10pm. Then the show hits Chicago from June 20th-22nd at Rotofugi and also the San Diego Comic-Con from July 23rd-27th.

Love that life size Slimmer. He really is just a huge booger.
