I braved leaving the sanctuary of my not-so-hidden fortress behind the Orange Curtain to attend the opening of an art exhibit at Gallery 1988 on Melrose Ave.
The exhibit was called Under The Influence: A Tribute To Stan Lee and it featured original paintings from about a 100 various artists of various styles and techniques. There were some incredible pieces on display that ranged from the truly inspiring to the completely whacked — but all were unique. Some of the artists featured included Chris Reccardi, Cameron Tiede, Amanda Visell, and many more. Stan Lee was supposedly there for about 15 minutes, but left before my friend Lance and I managed to get inside of the packed gallery. As much as I loved most of the art it made me that much more aware of how broke I am. Ah, if only I could afford one of those 1.5K pop masterpieces. Of course I didn’t bother to take any pictures to share with you in regards to my post — so you’ll have to take my word for it.
I also realized that I really need to get out more often.
