There is a wonderful art gallery in Los Angeles called Leanna Lin’s Wonderland. Leanna and her gallery are avid community supporters and they host fun and cutesy shows that help to highlight local artists and support causes, such as Doggie Wonderland, which supports animal rescue. This Saturday Sept 12 from 6 to 10 pm is their latest show, Small Adventures, which is curated by the gallery curator, Supahcute aka Hana Kim. The show is a “serious and silly tribute to Maurice Sendak and Shel Silverstein“, both venerated children’s book writers, among other things. Here are a few sneaks!
