Riot Fest is offering a new, exciting exhibit at this year's event: The John Stamos Art Show. The exhibit will focus on, as the press release reads, “celebrating the magic of John Stamos,” of course.
The best part is they want you to submit your John Stamos artwork to be in the running for some awesome prizes!
HAVE MERCY! The John Stamos Art Show plans to cover walls with paintings, drawings and sketches honoring the Full House icon, creating the largest art collection of the actor under one roof.
“It promises to be the greatest art event ever in the history of the world!,” Riot Fest says.
Plus, all the art will be auctioned or sold, benefiting a charity of John Stamos' choice.
Cobra Lounge will host the Opening Night Gala from July 14 to July 16. A second showing will premiere at Riot Fest from Sept. 15 to Sept. 17.
A panel of judges—including Danette Chavez and Gwen Ihnat from The A.V. Club, Nihilist Arby’s, Riot Fest Twitter, Anna Cerniglia from Johalla Projects and a very special surprise guest—will choose the Art Show's winners.
Now, listen up: The Grand Prize Winner is awarded two VIP passes to Riot Fest and a DVD box set of Full House. Second place receives two general admission Riot Fest tickets, and third place will receive one general admission ticket.
Artwork can be submitted until July 7. Find out details below.
