Kristen Morgan, an artist and professor at Cal State Long Beach, has a current installation in Hollywood which combines pop culture itself (mainly cartoon character comics, board games, coloring books and merchandising artifacts) with sculpture, using found objects to create statues of animation icons Mighty Mouse and Popeye. The show, Objects for Everyone I Have Ever Known, runs through August 16th at Marc Selwyn Fine Art Gallery on Wilshire Blvd. The L.A. Times reviewed the show in today’s Calendar section.

    Ryan- My guess was it´s Bert from Sesamestreet.
    This Yellowish jug under the table.

    Yeah, it looks vaguely like Bert, just noticed the little tuft of hair on top of it. Although I never thought Bert had so many teeth.
