Finding and busting some of the world’s biggest myths is almost an art unto itself. Now, there’s an entire exhibition dedicated to the Art of the Myth. It’s even got the stamp of approval from Adam Savage himself.
Burbank memorabilia shop Creature Features unveiled its latest art exhibit, Testing Myths. Cultivated by artist Chogrin, the group art gallery features several artists paying tribute to the works of MythBusters stars Savage and Jamie Hyneman. It ranges from classic Frankenstein-esque block prints to adding the Busters’ likeness into The Muppets. It shows just how influential the MythBusters have been, and what impact the show and its stars have had. Here’s just a few of the pieces from the collection.
Even though MythBusters aired its final episode in March, the show’s not completely off the radar. There’s reportedly a revival series in the works, and the MythBusters’ M7 Build Team is hosting its own myth-busting series on Netflix called The White Rabbit Project. Then, of course, you’ve got the reality show on the Science Channel that’s searching for “The Next MythBuster.” The trailer came out last week, it looks pretty generic.
Savage has been pretty quiet about the reality show, which he and Hyneman are not involved in at all, but he has been singing the praises of the art show on Twitter. Who knows, maybe he’s found a new piece for his home collection. Who wouldn’t love to have a picture of themselves as a two-headed 8-bit monstrosity? Testing Myths will be on display until November 27.
