Like most of you, I absolutely adore NBC’s Community. Unlike most shows that follow a set of rules, Dan Harmon‘s Community constantly shatters expectations and you never know where the next episode will take you. If you’re not watching, you really are missing out on one of the best shows on television.
Anyhow, if you’re a fan of Community and live in the L.A. area, you’re going to want to get to the Monk Space Gallery on June 23. That’s because PixelDrip is hosting a “Six Seasons and a Movie” art show that will have 130 artists from around the world paying tribute to the show! And the best part is admission will be free. More info after the jump.
According to PixelDrip’s website:
Exhibited artwork will range from framed and canvas pieces to vinyl toys, dioramas, and plush dolls. Additional artwork and video shorts will be on display via projector and monitors. Among the interactive elements are several video game demo kiosks and a table with three college textbooks that attendees can artistically vandalize. Monk Space itself will be transformed to give attendees a genuine Greendale experience. Attendees are also eligible to win prizes through raffles, the costume contest on Saturday, and the trivia contest on Sunday.
Admission is free to the public. In addition to markets, restaurants, and supply stores in the immediate area, there will be a food truck parked just outside the venue during exhibit hours. The exhibit will be open from 11am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday. Monk Space is located at 4414 West 2nd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90004. Further announcements concerning the Six Seasons and a Movie art show will be revealed leading up to the event.
