Jared Davis is the curator and lead organizer of Countdown to Yuri’s Night. He is primarily an artist and scenic designer who has a self proclaimed man-crush on William Shatner (as TOS Captain Kirk, of course). Monkeys, tiki, velvet and space are frequently explored in his painting. Jared seeks projects that combine art and theater and has designed for Trixie Little and the Evil Hate Monkey, The Lobsterboy Revue, Landless Theatre Company and many others. In addition to five years of Yuri’s Night events, he co-produces Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club. Originally from Detroit, MI he moved to DC in 1999 where he lives with his wife and dog.
You can preview Jared’s artwork at Artomatic on the 11th floor.
