The Wild Rumpus Art Show Presents a ‘Magical’ Alternative

Though revelers are asked to party in place instead of marching through the streets of downtown this year, the Wild Rumpus Halloween Parade & Spectacle has pivoted its energy into creating safe and engaging experiences nonetheless. An online auction and Halloween TV special are coming down the line, but for now, enjoy the “Wild Rumpus Virtual Art Show,” hosted by tiny ATH gallery. In addition to Sarah Flinn—whose painting, “Worm Forest,” appears on the cover of Flagpole this week—the show includes pieces interpreting the theme “Magical” by Sam Balling, Stefan Eberhart, Will Eskridge, Laura Floyd, David Noah, Lois Songster, Rose Shelton, Valley StipeMaas, Sam Watson, Jacob Wenzka and many more. The gallery will arrange pickups for purchased artworks, and a portion of proceeds will benefit the Wild Rumpus, Food2Kids and tiny ATH.

Check out a few samples below, and visit before the end of October to see the whole collection.
