Hand-knit superhero costumes gallery show in Knoxville

Mark Newport, whose hand-knit superhero costumes have been mentioned here before, has a gallery show at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville's Ewing Gallery. I really love these pieces -- they'd make great jammies (or, without the legs, hoodies).

    1. It’s protected as “artwork”, maybe parody laws? I’m a designer, not a lawyer. I would assume they’ll be okay. As long as they’re not reproducing en masse for halloween costumes to be sold.

  1. I love how the knit suits are sort of floppy on their hangers.
    “I come over da house! We’re best friends!”

  2. To correct the Boing Boing post, Mark Newport’s show is actually at the UT Downtown Gallery. http://web.utk.edu/~downtown/
    The website has directions to the gallery with more images and links to press.
