Sesame Street Art Exhibition Benefits City of Hope (PHOTOS)

Posted: 04/27/2012 10:16 am

Sesame Street is the inspiration behind a unique two-day art exhibition at L.A.'s Known Gallery, with proceeds going toward the City of Hope's Department of Pediatrics.

The beloved children's TV program has collaborated with sports-gear supplier, Neff Headwear, and The Seventh Letter, a collective of the world's leading artists working in fine art, photography, graphic design, graffiti, tattoo art, sculpture and music.

The show cleverly merges childhood nostalgia with contemporary urban design, featuring around 50 works of art ranging from $200 all the way up to $8,000 apiece.

Sales benefit a good cause, but if you can't afford to invest in art at the moment, consider picking up a Sesame Street-inspired t-shirt from The Sesame Street series by Neff Headwear, available online June 1. They're only $22.

In the meantime, check out some pictures and a video from the Sesame Street show right here, and if you're in L.A., see the works of art in person at Known Gallery (441 North Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, 90036, 310-860-6263). Hours are Saturday, April 28 (6 - 11 p.m.) and Sunday, April 29 (11 a.m. 9 p.m.). More on Pop Curious.
