Loch Ness Monster Spotted in New York

nessie.jpgHere at UnBeige, we have an insatiable appetite for fantastic creatures of the deep (don’t even get us started on the giant squid), so imagine our delight when today in downtown Manhattan we caught a glimpse of the Loch Ness Monster. Expect the reported “Nessie” sightings to explode come Wednesday, when apexart opens “Nessie Does New York: Monetizing Myth, Legend, and Culture,” a new exhibition that turns the arts space into the Loch Ness giftshop, stocked with items ranging from stuffed Loch Ness monsters to mugs and key chains. On view through August 2, the show explores the commercialization of art, myth, and culture with the help of installation artwork by Adam Maron and Quincy Pearson. Meanwhile, apexart promises that Nessie will be joined in the exhibition by other creatures (some call them mythological, we prefer “controversial”) such as the Chupacabra and Bigfoot. Look sharp for Mulder and Scully, as this has all the makings of an X-Files reunion.
