Nouar - Oswald's Weiners Flayrah has published announcements of several art exhibitions at the WWA gallery in Culver City, California. The exhibition “The Happiest Show on Earth” will be on display there from September 7th through October 5th, with an opening reception on Saturday, September 7th from 7–10 p.m.

“The Happiest Show on Earth” consists of 89 paintings by 54 artists, showing their interpretations of famous Walt Disney characters including many anthropomorphic ones – Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, Robin Hood and Little John, Goofy, Bambi, and more. You can guess the general artistic approach by some of the artists’ pseudonyms: Beast Brothers, GORElla, Kill the Giant, and Super Ugly. Would you pay three and four figures for these? Here they all are; you can buy them online at the link above.

The WWA gallery (WWA = Wonderful World of Animation) is at 9517 Culver Boulevard, Culver City, California 90232; (310) 836-4992; in the Culver City Art District, just a few blocks from the Culver Hotel where Judy Garland and the Munchkins stayed during the filming of the 1939 The Wizard of Oz. Look for metered street parking. The gallery’s hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; closed Mondays.

You've got links to everything else. Here's one to the Culver Hotel. To add a bit more historical detail, real estate developer Harry Culver raced during the 1910s to lay out Culver City and Culver Boulevard while Los Angeles was expanding rapidly in his direction. Today Culver City is an independent city entirely surrounded by Los Angeles. (I lived in Culver City for thirty-five years.)
