It's rather ironic that, last week, I watched Wet Hot American Summer for the first time. Because on June 10th 2011 (7PM to 10PM), Gallery1988: Venice will open "Camp Firewood: Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Wet Hot American Summer", with 60 artists paying tribute to the classic cult comedy.
Created by the brains behind the MTV sketch show "The State," this movie is an absurd spoof of the 1980's sleepover camp comedy...and it launched a ton of careers. G1988 Venice will have the movie's director and co-writer, David Wain, as host of the art show. Definitely check out the show...and go stream the movie via Netflix, if you've never seen it.
