Art of the Coney Island Hysterical Society by Richard Eagan and Philomena Marano


Artist Reception Tonight! Thursday, October 18, 6:00-9:00 PM

Show dates: October 18 - November 25, 2012

 Richard Eagan, one of 440's original founding members, is also a co-founder of the Coney island Hysterical Society, which became active in 1982. In this exhibit (October 18 through November 25), Richard is inviting his Hysterical Society co-founder Philomena Marano to join him in showing work they have done both individually and collaboratively through the years, including documentation of the Coney Island on-site projects for which they became well-known.


 During the run of this show, there will be two events in the Sundays at 440 series: A reading of Alive on the Inside, the artist's theatrical odyssey through the surreal Coney Island dreamscape, andHysterical/Historical, an illustrated talk by Richard and Philomena on the history of their work as The Coney Island Hysterical Society.
