The new Moshi Moshi gallery/store in Portland, Oregon opened to the public last weekend with an "I Love Mr. T" art show to benefit an area elementary school. The show was the brainchild of a ten-year-old artist, Levi Pitters, who also got his friends to contribute Mr. T-related artwork. If you can't get to Moshi Moshi in person, you can check out (and buy!) the artwork on Etsy. Also, MAKE:'s Shawn Connally was there and snapped some photos. Shawn says, "As you can imagine, it was RAD!"
