, a show of paintings, collages, booklets, prints, album covers, sketchbooks, and drippy sculptures that are sure to appeal to children and oatmeal lovers alike.
Growing up in rural Orange County, Mulroney was allowed sugar cereal only on his birthday. His mother would take him to the grocery store and let him pick out any box of cereal that he liked. "I got Trix every time," he states. "I didn't even care about the cereal—I was after the box. I just knew that me and that rabbit were gonna' have some good times together." Mulroney admits it was common for him to sleep with the box for several nights after his birthday. "I got everything I could out of the box of cereal," he confesses.
Now that Mulroney is old enough to buy whatever cereal he likes whenever he wants, he has little desire to sleep with a box. He does, however, want to share that sense of adventure and togetherness that he felt as a child with as many people as possible. It is his hope that his art lives up to the task.
