Last week, our own Jim Riswold was inducted into the One Club 2013 Creative Hall of Fame. Riswold is perhaps best known for his creation of the Mars Blackmon character, the “Bo Knows” campaign and for pairing Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny. Today, he runs W+K12, the agency’s in-house advertising school.
Wieden+Kennedy is proud to host one of our own, Jim Riswold, in the W+K Gallery this March for the opening reception of PHILOSOPHY IS NOT FUNNY, a show about Hegel, Kant, Spinoza and their equally unfunny contemporaries.
Jim Riswold is a huge part of W+K history, and tonight, November 2, he’s having a gallery show of his latest works, World War I According to Jim Riswold. Read his Artist Statement below, and show your support for this extraordinary man by visiting the opening of World War I According to Jim Riswold from 5:30 to 7:30 at Augen Gallery at 716 NW Davis.
