Art Meow-sel: O Cinema's Purrfect Answer To Art Basel

Sometimes a title alone can inspire interest. (Think Naked Coeds or 1000 Faceplants You Don't Want to Miss.) Such is the case with O Cinema's week-long transmedia event, Art Meow-sel. Has a nice ring to it, no?

Art Meow-sel exhibits include "Cat Art: The Good, The Bad, The Unbelievable & Other Ridiculousness"; "Bad Cat Art"; and "The Man's Multi-Colored Post-It Movie Cat Wall." There'll also be a "CATWANG Photo Booth," whatever that is, plus an appearance by Miss Gremlin De La Bushes, works by Cat Del Buono, Diana Leidel, Antonia Catherine, plus an "I must have that sh*t" Pop Cultural Tchotchkes Sale.

Acolytes of the Absurd, it's time to swoon now (or, more appropriately, meow.)

If you're tired of all the Baseling, hate money, smell like patchouli, and worship Andy Warhol, you'll probably get a kick out of Art Meow-sel.
