Gallery1988 will be hosting the Garbage Pail Kids Tribute Art Show at their Los Angeles location. Over 100 artists were asked to create their own Garbage Pail Kids art for the show and rumor has it that some of them may become actual cards. Gallery1988 in conjunction with Topps and The Hundreds produced the show that opens Friday September 2, 2011. A screening of the 1987 film flop, The Garbage Pail Kids Movie, will be shown at The CineFamily in Los Angeles on Saturday September 3, 2011.
For the uninitiated, Garbage Pail Kids are a series of sick, twisted, and delightfully disgusting trading cards first created in 1985 that parodied the Cabbage Patch Kids, the dolls that were hugely popular at that time.
