WWA Gallery presents...
SWEET STREETS: Art Exhibition Co-Curated by Spank!
Exhibition runs: November 19 - December 23, 2011.
Opening party: November 19th, 7pm - 10pm.

@ WWA Gallery
9517 Culver Blvd.
Culver City, CA 90232

☆ Opening Party:
8pm: Fashion show by Spank! and Chubby Bunny.
7pm - 10pm: Artists reception, free and open to the public.

SWEET STREETS invites you to the exciting next installment of our self-titled group show, co-curated by Tokyo fashion brand Spank! Spank! is not only inspired by 80s style, but also the "just want to have fun" attitude of Cyndi Lauper, My Little Pony, Barbie, and everything in between. In the 1980s, America saw the resurgence of Hello Kitty, Studio Ghibli's first films, and anime blockbusters like Akira which continue to captivate artists. Today in Japan, these 80s icons are charming an entirely new generation. This show explores the relationship between 1980s American and Japanese pop-cultures by a fresh mix of artists. An opening party will be held on November 19th, 7pm - 10pm, feat. live music, fashion show (and yes, pop-up shop!) by Spank! and Chubby Bunny.
