Disney Storybook Show at Gallery 1988

Disney Storybook Show

Gallery 1988 on Melrose Ave. has an interesting show currently on display called “The Storybook Series: Winnie the Pooh.” Here’s the concept for the show: a bunch of preschoolers from the Hollywood Schoolhouse were read a Winnie the Pooh storybook and then asked to draw their favorite scenes from the story (without any visual reference, not that it would have made a difference). Then, the preschoolers’ drawings were handed off to a bunch of contemporary LA artists who reinterpreted the children’s drawings as paintings and mixed media works of art. The pieces are being sold as a set, with a portion of the proceeds going back to the preschool. All the pieces from the show can be seen at the Gallery 1988 website.
