Ghost Empire Collective Presents The Opening Day Show
The Famous Neons Unplugged, 208 E. 12th, Cincinnati, Oh 45202
Monday, Opening Day, April 1st, 2013
Cincinnati, OH – The Ghost Empire Collective, a group of local tri-state artists who show artwork together, will be hosting their first show of 2013 on Opening Day. It will feature live art and artwork by illustrator/poster designer Jaimie Filer, photographer/visual artist Snotty RLE, videographer/visual artist Justin K. Hite, illustrator Christina Wald, painter Doug Meyer, designer Justin Barraclough, artist Brian Lalley, artist Sarah Timmerman, visual artist/Ghost Empire founder Anthony “Tank” Mansfield, and many more.
This will mark Ghost Empire’s first show of the calendar year. The group has had successful shows at The Famous Neon’s Unplugged, MOTR Pub, The Avenue, 3 Kings, and Mainstay Rock Bar in 2012 and participated in the launch night of Avengers vs. X-Men at Arcadian Comics & Games. The group will hang the show salon style and will be showcasing artwork that is based upon Mr. Red Legs, famous Reds, and historic moments in Reds’ history.
“Opening Day is one of the biggest events in Cincinnati. It is something the entire city turns out for and we wanted to be a part of it.” Mansfield said. “The Reds have had a countless number of memorable moments and players through out the years, plus Mr. Red Legs is one of the most iconic mascots in all of sports and we wanted to honor all of these things.” Mansfield stated. The Ghost Empire Collective will be doing live art through out the day, literally creating drawings and paintings from scratch during the show. Prints of some of the artwork and shirts will be for sale (credit cards are accepted). There are many ways to spend Opening Day but its hard to beat sitting on the patio at Neons, sipping cold cocktails, surrounded by original Cincinnati Reds art, and watching the game outdoors on a massive flat screen.
