Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Art Show: Los Angeles
They came, they saw and they kicked supernatural ass. Ghostbusters was released 30 years ago, and if you were a kid in elementary school who had a Ghostbusters folder, this silliest and slimiest of movies has a special place in your heart. In addition to releasing a new line of apparel and toys, Sony is partnering with Gallery 1988 for a Ghostbusters 30th-anniversary art show, a traveling exhibit that opened in New York and will make stops in Chicago and at San Diego Comic-Con. More than a year in the making, the group show features 70-plus artists who have contributed paintings, prints, sculpture and even plush toys that make plenty of references to the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, Ecto-1 car, Rick Moranis' colander hat (in velvet!) and, of course, our four proton pack - wearing heroes - Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. And don't be spooked if you encounter a 7-foot-tall version of Slimer. As with all of the gallery's popular shows, expect a long line to get in on opening night, so bring a couple of Twinkies. Gallery 1988 (West), 7308 Melrose Ave., Fairfax; Sat., May 17, 7-10 p.m.; free. Exhibit Wed.-Sun., 11 a.m.-6 p.m., through June 1. (323) 937-7088, nineteeneightyeight.com.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: May 17. Continues through June 1, 2014 (Expired: 06/01/14)
