Anders Nilsen - Adam and Eve Sneaking Back into the Garden of Eden to Steal More Apples

Chicago, you've got one hell of an awesome weekend coming up. Kick things off on Friday, June 15th with the opening reception for a new exhibit from Anders Nilsen at the Elmhurt Art Museum.

Titled Adam and Eve Sneaking Back Into the Garden to Steal More Apples, the show will mostly be drawings, and includes the largest drawing Anders says he's probably ever done, a 5' x 8' leviathan.

Anders will also debut a 28'-long handmade accordian book called Rage of Poseidon. He explains, "The book compiles a number of stories adapted from my sketchbooks, all stories of familiar gods and angels, including ones about Isaac and Abraham, the Devil, Leda and the Swan, and one where Jesus tries to pick up Aphrodite in a bar."  Visit Anders' blog for more details about the show, and some behind-the-scenes photos.

Join him for the opening reception this Friday night at 6:30 PM, and make a return visit on Friday, August 17th for a slideshow presentation and artist talk with Anders.

The Elmhurst Art Museum is located at 150 Cottage Hill Ave. in Elmhurst, Illinois, right outside Chicago.
