FOX's low-rated, critically acclaimed Arrested Development is making a TV comeback next year, maybe even a movie. Until Netflix revives the much-missed sitcom, L.A.'s pop art headquarters, Gallery 1988, is hosting the tribute exhibit "There's Always Money in the Banana Stand," its title inspired by one of the show's famous lines. More than 60 artists have contributed paintings, prints, sculpture and plushie dolls. Series creator Mitch Hurwitz attended the recent opening, and even he must have been impressed by all the artistic renderings many of which are sold out of Newport Beach's most dysfunctional family, from Casey Weldon's version of the Bluths in The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo to Joey Spiotto's incarnation of the Bluths as the Beatles. Imagine having Cuyler Smith's Bluth Thanksgiving print over your dining room table on Turkey Day. Gallery 1988, 7020 Melrose Ave.; thru July 21; free. (323) 937-7088, nineteeneightyeight.com.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: June 29. Continues through July 21, 2012
