This is a Thing: The Grumpy Cat Art Show
Grumpy Cat has hit the Alabama art scene faster than a barefoot jackrabbit on a hot greasy griddle in the middle of August! Yee haw! Spongebobian colloquialisms aside, the Grumpy Cat Art Project is an actual ongoing event at the Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment center in Hunstville, Alabama.
Starting on May 27, local artists will auction off their takes on the extremely unhappy feline. Not in the Hunstville area? No problem. Interested art collectors can bid online in order to snag one of these pieces; hopefully ousting that boring family portrait you have hanging over the fireplace. (So long, Great Nana.)
Auction proceeds will go to the artists in addition to funding the development of a children’s playground at the Lowe Mill center. Utilizing a variety of mediums, Grumpy Cat appears in paintings, ceramic sculpture, stained glass, tissue paper, 3D sculpture, paper pulp, charcoal, wax, yarn, soap, copper and — still not joking here — chainmail.
All of the Grumpy Cat artwork is viewable here. However, you can check out our top 10 favorite pieces below. Oh, and if any of our readers purchases one of these ill-tempered masterpieces, we demand a picture of it hanging up in your home!
