In the future Juggalogians will surely tell the tale of the art show that brought their clowny subculture into the fine art limelight, and the paintings which would shape the very landscape of what it means to be a Juggalo.
Future generations of Juggalos will have artist Lucy Owen to thank for shedding a humanistic light on their clown white crews and tearing down their painted walls, exposing the disenfranchised youth lurking within.
Lucy fully immersed herself in Juggalo culture when a conversation with a young Juggalo, who spoke of being ridiculed on a daily basis, inspired her to explore their fringe fan culture and see what makes them tick.
The result is a series of rather remarkable paintings called Where The Juggalos Roam, which not only capture the visual essence of the subculture but also succeeds in conveying the emotional state of the people wearing the face paint.
Will the first ever Juggalo themed art show at the Start Gallery in Detroit change the way people treat the Juggalos? Probably not, but now they can find work as art models!
