About

California State University, Northridge Art Galleries is honored to present Blinky the Friendly Hen: 40th Anniversary Exhibition. Comprised of a Relic Chamber, a Blinky Theatre, Blinky book editions (1979-2019), chapel, gift shop, stained glass, and historical artifacts, this fourth retrospective exhibition celebrates historical and contemporary works relating to four decades of the Blinky phenomenon. A curated group exhibition of works by international artists, CSUN faculty and staff, as well as a student show component, will acknowledge Blinky’s legacy.

 

Built in the style of a cathedral dungeon, the Relic Chamber will have early first-class relics on display from the collection of Barry Sloane; other reliquaries will contain third-class relics produced over the years. The Blinky Theatre will screen Blinky-related videos, including a 1983 clip from “Late Night with David Letterman,” Bruce and Norman Yonemotos’ 1988 video documenting Blinky’s exhumation, a MOCA TV episode, and a punk rock video dedicated to Blinky. The Blinky Gift Shop installation will offer affordable handmade Blinky souvenirs and collectibles. 

Gallery hours are from noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 8 p.m. on Thursday. More information and press images are available upon request; call the Art Galleries at (818) 677-2156 or visit www.csun.edu/artgalleries
