I was kind of passing by the Echo Park area and decided to make a stop on the legendary Sunset Blvd. to see my favorite childhood videogame characters in art form. I can assure you, I was not disappointed! The artists that participated in this show are all extremely talented. They didn't just do a simple homage to their favorite game characters, they rebooted them in some wildly imaginative ways!
I definitely recommend paying the SUPER iam8bit gallery a visit. Make an evening out of it and enjoy some of the other cultural offerings of Echo Park.
Admission is free. The gallery's address and hours:
2147 W. Sunset Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90026
Thurs: 1pm - 8pm
Fri: 1pm - 9pm
Sat: 12pm - 9pm
Sun: 12pm - 6pm
The Parking Genie recommends going on a Sunday as there is less traffic and the parking meters are free all day.
Here are some of my favorite pieces from the show:
|Leisure Suit Larry in "Nighthawks"|
|The Legend of Zelda|
|Goomba Roomba (it actually vacuums)|
