Remix: The Art of Music" revisits the marriage between the two and features more than 60 artists, among them Shepard Fairey, Mickey Avalon, Incubus singer Brandon Boyd and Val Kilmer, whose paintings and sculpture were the subject of a pop-up show at the gallery last year. Curated by Jason Ostro and Elena Jacobson, half of the exhibit displays more works designed to look like LPs, while the other features mixed-media art inspired by music in general. The opening reception features DJ Jonathan Williams, and a portion of the proceeds benefit Adopt the Arts, a nonprofit co-founded by Abby Berman and former Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum that funds art programs in public schools.
Though the music industry is ever-changing, album covers have always been considered great examples of art. For the last two years, Gabba Gallery has hosted "Cratedigger," a group show with artists whose 12-by-12-inch pieces riff on album covers by either real or imagined bands or artists, including David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Prince, Led Zeppelin and The Sex Pistols.
