Troll Museum celebrates 14 years with an art show

By Nicholas McNallen

The Troll Museum, one of New York's best oddities, puts another candle on its cake this Saturday. In celebration of the museum's 14th anniversary, founder and curator Reverend Jen is holding an art show.  Cuz hey, it's not every day your personal exhibition of florescent-haired trolls turns 14.

The show will feature works by alternative cartoonist Dame Darcy, conceptual artist Lisa Levy, painter George Boorujy, artist and fellow curator Joe Heaps Nelson, Reverend Jen herself, and more.  The show opens on September 20th and will run for three weeks.  Attendees are encouraged to BYOB, though an abundance of tater tots is promised.  

When she's not giving private tours of her menagerie of bugaboos, Jen also hosts the annual Mr. Lower East Side Beauty Pageant and the weekly Anti-Slam open mike at Old Man Hustle.  Recently, Jen and her trolls have faced possible eviction, but she has fought to hold on to their Lower East Side residence (and won!).  A slew of fundraisers and a gofundme page (which rewards donors with various troll-related prints and paintings), have kept the feisty Lyceum of Trollery in business.  Here's to 15 years!

To attend, e-mail Rev. at to R.S.V.P., as space is limited.
