Last night, the touring ‘Art of the Assassin’ exhibition opened at DTLA gallery featuring artistic interpretations of the revolutionary war themes explored in Ubisoft’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed 3 console game (10.30). Co-presented with Rock the Vote, the show features work from Mark Dean Veca, Brian Flynn, Justin Bartlett, Racecar 13, Dual Forces and many more. Artist Thank You X was also painting live in the gallery. Up in the loft, one of the game’s illustrators demoed the new game which boasts an even more immersive experience than the previous two games, in part through a more flexible combat system. The party aspect officially kicked off with DJ Skee doing his thing, while people looked at the art and put on revolutionary war era costumes for the photo booth experience.
Over the next few months, The Art of the Assassin is set to travel Eastward to several locations to be announced. In October, the show returns to LA for an art auction benefitting Rock the Vote’s efforts to mobilize the youth of America to have their voices heard at the polls.
