HITCHCOCK COMMISSIONED BY THE WWE (WWF)
March, 2002- Artist Philip Hitchcock has been commissioned by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) to create bodycast sculptures of seven wrestling Superstars. The sculptures will be exhibited at the annual “Wrestlemania Fan Axxess” show, held this year in Toronto, Canada.
“The idea of the exhibit,” according to Hitchcock, “was to capture the essence of each wrestler’s signature move. These are the poses and gestures which are instantly recognizable to fans.”
The sculptures are on display as part of the Wrestlemania Fan Axxess show at The National Trade Centre Automotive Building at Exhibition Place, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The event takes place Thursday, March 14, through Saturday, March 16, 2002 from 12:00 to 4:30 pm and 6:00 to 10:30 pm on all three days. Meet the artist from 2:00 to 8:00pm each day.
