Two Minute Warning: The Art of Richard Flynn

Prepare to be amazed! Famous around Salem for his Sharpie drawn comics (featured most prominently on Feed Your Head's monthly spoken word open mic flyers), Richard Flynn is also a prolific painter and sculptor. Called outsider art by some, genius by others, Richard's work will blow your mind. Drawing his inspiration from pop culture, Richard's work is characterized by bright colors and assemblages made from everyday objects like bowling pins, bottle caps, dolls, drinking cups, toilet bowl plungers, and more . . . Dubbed Punk Rock Totem Poles, Richard's creations will be taking over Feed Your Head for the month of August and beyond!

Richard Flynn's creations will be on display at Feed Your Head from August 2 - September 5 as part of our rotating monthly art series. Please join us for the opening reception with the artist on Thursday, August 9 from 7 - 9 pm. Admission is free and an array of pop art inspired snacks will be served.
