Perihelion Arts Gallery has hosted Mark's artwork twice in the past. The first show in 2004 featured Mark's public debut tour of his Beautiful Mutants prints. Perihelion followed up 2 years later with a show of Mark's Postcard Diaries in 2006. Now in 2008, Mothersbaugh's latest Beautiful Mutants make an appearance in Phoenix, AZ.

Perihelion Arts, run by Amy Young and Douglas Grant, is currently located in downtown Phoenix, AZ, and has supplied the area with interesting exhibits & events since October 2002.

20 of Mothersbaugh's framed Beautiful Mutants prints invaded the walls of Perihelion - none of which has ever been shown in Arizona until now.

Mark Mothersbaugh was not able to attend in person, but we were able to host a very entertaining live video chat with him from his home in Hollywood, CA.

Thanks to Amy & Doug of Perihelion Arts, Dayvid, Thaddeus, Craig, Chela, and Lo-Lo's Chicken & Waffles for making my trip to Phoenix so enjoyable. Hope to see you all again soon.

The show will be up for the entire month of July, so stop by Perihelion Arts if you're near the Phoenix area.
