Under normal circumstances, up close and personal. Did we mention the wine?

However, 2020 has been everything but normal circumstances, which means an online art show is not just encouraged, it's exciting. That goes doubly when it's the return of Crazy 4 Cult. Crazy 4 Cult is the show that started it all. In 2004, it was the folks at Gallery 1988 who wondered, "What if we made art about popular culture, but took it really seriously?" Sixteen years and 14 annual shows later, pop culture art is everywhere.

The new show opens on August 8  on www.gallery1988.com. It features work in all mediums, with tons of varied subjects. It's truly robust and exciting. To illustrate, we've selected 14 of the well over 100 different pieces in the show. Check them out, and see if you can figure out which piece is from what movie or show
