WAX NOSTALGIC: 1994 is an art show and homage celebrating a year that defined a decade. From the wicked to the whack, ‘94 spawned some of the most compelling and memorable moments of an entire era. Guest curated by Chris Breeden, the show invites over 50 artists to reminisce on the pop culture and current events of 1994. It was a time of hella highs and bogus lows and the best way to deal was to party on through. Some remember it fondly, others would rather forget – but all are invited to celebrate what turned out to be one helluva year.

Arguably the most compelling and memorable year of the 90s, the show features over 50 local, regional and national artist all waxing nostalgic for pop art and culture from ’94. From Forrest Gump to the Shawshank Redemption, Nelson Mandela’s election to Kurt Cobain’s untimely death, it was a year of immense highs and the lowest of lows. What remains are our memories brought to life by the artists in the show.
