Ever Think He-Man and Linda Evans Were Separated At Birth?


Then I’ve got just the art show for you!

It’s Skeletor Saves, a collective show improbably yet delightfully based on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, with proceeds going to the Ali Forney Center for homeless LGBT youth.

The above dip-tych– Sam Simon‘s “Twins: He-Man and Linda Evans”–is just one of the contemplative works on display, and even if there isn’t a followup called Twins: Conan the Barbarian and Joan Collins, there’s plenty more to get you off your ass and into the planet Eternia.

So go. It’s this Thursday the 7th from 7-10 PM at Headquarters Studios, 385-Broadway.

Curators Brian Moylan, Bradford Shellhammer, and David Mason will be there, so in between ogling the artistic parallels between animated superheroes and tranquilized TV heroines, you can pester them to put you on their various high-profile sites.

Dare to wear a pageboy haircut for extra points.
