This past weekend Known Gallery over on Fairfax hosted a show curated for the benefit of the City of Hope Department of Pediatrics that featured street artists and a central theme of everyone’s all-time favorite kids show, Sesame Street. The collaboration came when Neff joined with The Seventh Letter to execute the idea of art helping children. What better theme ties together such an event than the classic children’s series fundamental to any kid’s proper growth? Sesame Street has always promoted creativity alongside education, and in outdoor spaces. Fitting that they would ask street artists to participate. Sesame Street is such a universal television show, understood by anyone and beloved by all, of course this motif mused some really impressive pieces. Check out photos of all of the art included in the exhibit below.
