One of our favorite art galleries in all of LA (and what might be the preeminent pop culture art gallery in the U.S.) is Gallery 1988 as it is one of a handful of places where art and comedy very directly intersect. They’ve hosted exhibitions of art dedicated to anything from The Simpsons to SNL to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia to classic stand-up comedy and so much more.
Now, in these times, they’re taking a big leap by announcing an open call for submissions for the next few shows coming up. Just send 3-4 JPEGs or link to site to email@example.com and if they dig your stuff, they’ll reach out to you within four weeks.
If you have a penchant for making wonderful, curious, amazing art that’s very likely inspired by something in pop culture, you really ought to submit.

We’ve only done this a few times in 17 year history – but we’re calling for submissions! We know more artists are home creating than ever before and we have some great shows coming up. Please send 3-4 JPEGs or a link to a website to firstname.lastname@example.org (no theme needed). We can’t respond to everyone, but if your work fits for an upcoming exhibit – you’ll hear from us within 4 weeks. THANKS!!
