We all grew up on Sesame Street.
When it comes to educational programming, Sesame Street was watched by just about everyone, so when L.A.'s Known Gallery wanted to have a benefit for City of Hope's Department of Pediatrics it made sense that they focused on Sesame Street-inspired art.
The two-day exhibit was done in collaboration with action sports brand Neff and street art collective, Seventh Letter. The show cleverly merges childhood nostalgia with contemporary urban design, featuring around 50 works of art ranging from $200 all the way up to $8000 apiece. The artists come from different parts of the art world and include Mr. Cartoon, Stash, Madsteez, Todd Bratrud, and Ewok to name a few.
If you didn't get a chance to see the exhibit that took place this past weekend, you can still contribute to a good cause by picking up a Sesame Street-inspired t-shirt from The Sesame Street series by Neff Headwear, available online June 1. They’re only $22.
