A suitably grotesque, full-size Slimer kept the art company.
'Ghostbusters' art galore: nearly 80 artists were commissioned to create original work for Gallery1988's traveling exhibit marking the 30th anniversary of the film.
The exhibit's premiere at a gallery in Lower Manhattan drew hundreds of fans looking to buy prints of the work. After leaving New York on April 26th, the show will make stops in LA, Chicago, and San Diego.
The diversity of work on display speaks to the rich, unique imagery in the film.
Save for a select few prints, the only way fans can get copies of the art on display is to go in person to the exhibit.
The opening caught the attention of Peter Mosen, the self-proclaimed "Original Ghosthead" who's worked professionally to promote the films. He even has a cameo in 'Ghostbusters II.'
Mosen proudly displays a folder of magazine clippings proving his association with the franchise. His white Chevy Impala dressed up as an Ecto-1 and stuffed with 'Ghostbusters' memorabilia is certainly proof enough of his passion for the films.
Fellow Ghostheads arrived at the gallery opening fully suited up with homemade proton packs and other gear.
As the line to get into the gallery grew longer and longer, Jody Sumner kept fans entertained by challenging them with trivia questions. Correct answers scored a Crunch bar.
