R&R Gallery : Bill Murray

When curators choose a focus for an art show, it's usually thematic. The R&R Gallery in the Arts District has gone with Bill Murray. The R&R Gallery in the Arts District...oh, wait, this isn't Groundhog Day.

The show, which opens Friday, is entitled "Mr. Bill Murray: A Tribute To The Legend." It is curated by CW Milberger and Mark J. Yamamoto.

Milberger and Yamamoto put a call out to local artists and more than 40 came up with art that pay homage to the characters the actor has played throughout his long career. The show will run through Sept. 30 by appointment.

The opening night party runs Friday, September 17, from 7pm to midnight. The event is billed as a party that will pay tribute to the "badassness that is Bill Murray."

Rumors are swirling that Murray may actually be at the opening. The party will feature an open bar sponsored by iamOMNI.com.
