“Rejoice!:  A Retrospective of Avtar Gill, the Cincinnati Hat-Man” opens April 25, 2014 at Thunder-Sky, Inc. with a reception 6 to 10 pm.  The show closes June 13, 2014.  Avtar Gill, known by many downtowners as The Hat Man, passed away early 2013, but he will always be remembered (like Raymond Thunder-Sky) as a Cincinnati folk hero for the sign-emblazoned hats he wore while walking all across the city, and for his dedication to maintaining a strong, cultural voice and presence throughout his life.  This exhibit will feature photographs, video, testimonials, stories, and actual hats and signs The Hat-Man left behind.
