If you missed opening night of the KAWS Exhibition, fear not, there’s another chance to party with The Companion. PAFA (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts) is hosting KAWS AFTER DARK.

Here’s PAFA’s rundown of the nights’ Highlights:

-Get down and funky with DJ Foxx Boogie all night long -Watch out for pop-up dance battles by the Repstyles Crew in the galleries -Participate in a “KIMPSONS” Trivia Contest and show off your knowledge of all things Simpsons-related -Make a KAWS-inspired button to take home -Tour the installations of old and new art with curators and artists from PAFA’s staff -Enter a raffle to win a limited edition KAWS exhibition poster

I suspect tickets will go pretty fast for the event – so pop over to the PAFA Site and reserve yours now.

KAWS COMPANION COMES TO PHILLY

It has come to pass…the KAWS Companion has landed at 30th Street Station.

Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in collaboration with Amtrak bought the 16 foot-tall Companion sculpture to rest at 30th Station.

Kaws Companion will be there until May 14th, then it’ll be hauled away for some other city to enjoy. Lucky for us, it’s departure won’t signify the end, but the arrival of the KAWS Sculpture Plinth Exhibit at PAFA.
