Opening Party For EYE Will (A Micheal "Eyedea" Larsen Benefit Art Show)

Thank you to everyone who came out to Nicademus Art and Framing and The Turf Club this past Saturday.

For those not familiar with EYE Will it is a celebration of the visual art of a young Micheal "Eyedea" Larsen and the artists he worked with later in his life. The first show this past Saturday displayed sketches and paintings done by Larsen from grade school through high school alongside collaborations, album covers, and original work from Louis LaPierre, Michael Gaughan, James Penfield and others. Larsen's visual art shows ageless poise and wisdom, traits warmly familiar to those deeply affected by his poetry and music.

Contributing Visual Artists Included: Michael Gaughan, James Penfield, Booka B, Louis N LaPierre, Jeremy Ylvisaker, Satori, and George Tompson

EYE Will opened at Nicademus Art and Framing - 225 Snelling Avenue in Saint Paul, MN on November 27th with a reception from 6-9pm. The show is FREE and open to the general public through December 10th.

Immediately following the opening night reception, the nearby Turf Club hosted "Opening Party for EYE Will" featuring live sets from Face Candy, Kill the Vultures, Kristoff Krane, No Bird Sing, Carnage, Guitar Party, Sector 7G, Mr. Dufaux.

Both EYE Will and the Opening Party are Benefit Events. All art and ticket sales go to the Micheal “Eyedea” Larsen & Family Fund. Please visit for updates on future EYE Will events.
