Rob Tarbell- “Happy Birthday Noah”

On June 4, 2011 Skull-A-Day celebrated Skull Appreciation Day with an exhibit of over 100 skulls at Gallery 5 in Richmond, VA. If you didn't have a chance to make it to the gallery while the show was up, we now proudly present: "Skull Appreciation Day - The Exhibition".

“Happy Birthday Noah” is a gift and a theft or a borrow. I stole the idea from the stuffed-bear–in a balloon gift, borrowed some insertion methods from elaborate equipment supposedly needed to impregnate the balloon with a passenger and then the limited lifespan gave it life. The gradual deflation of the balloon slowly revealed and wrapped the skull while staying suspended above the present, as scene HERE.

The 2011 Skull Appreciation Day - The Exhibition was a collective art show celebrating the 5th anniversary of and its tremendous audience of artists and readers.

Throughout year 5.0 we will be featuring artwork from the show a few times a week. This is a chance to see all of the excellent skulls that were on display, and FOR SALE. Some of these pieces may still be available and this is a wonderful opportunity to own an original piece of skullriffic artwork. There are many well known artists who have contributed very reasonably priced works and many of them have donated their portion of the sale to benefit a great charity, the Richmond Peace Education Center.

Please take a moment to view all of the remarkable work that was created for the onset of this annual festivity. Your skull will appreciate you for showing it some love.
