Micucci Made This: Kate Micucci Takes Over the FLOOD Gallery for the Week
A recap of the multi-talented actress’s first art show with photos from the busy, fun-filled opening party
“Remember when laser tag was cool and then it wasn’t cool and then it was cool again and now it’s not anymore?”
This weekend, to celebrate her inimitable and joy-filled visual art, we welcomed Kate Micucci to take over our gallery space in Los Angeles. Best known as one half of the comedy-folk duo Garfunkel and Oates, the actress/comedian/musician personally set up her debut show, which featured a series of lighthearted drawings, cartoons, and paintings about different forms of love.
To kick off the week-long gallery show, Micucci hosted an intimate opening shindig on Thursday evening. With an interactive FoxTails photo booth (frame designed by Micucci herself), free drinks, music, and more, the party was packed with friendly faces and excited fans. A sizeable line formed down our block before doors opened and didn’t subside until the very end; everyone wanted to greet the personable artist and gaze at her loveable work. Even some of Micucci’s friends—including Garfunkel and Oates’s Riki Lindhome, Silicon Valley’s Kumail Nanjiani, comedian Tig Notaro, Eels’ Mark Oliver Everett, and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ Benmont Tench—stopped by to take in some culture and a couple of beverages.
If you want to pick up an original Micucci, you’d better be quick! There are still a couple that are available to purchase directly at the FLOOD Gallery, but don’t fret if your favorite piece was already snatched up—four of her pieces were translated into limited edition T-shirts that are on sale until Wednesday.
Photographer Brian Gove was onsite to document the fun. Check out his photos from the opening below.
