Trippy 'Krofft Super Art Show' opens in LA

On August 26th, a group art show inspired by the delightfully-twisted minds of brothers Sid and Marty Krofft opened at LA-LA Land Gallery in Los Angeles. Curated by Kii Arens, the "Krofft Super Art Show" is a tribute to Krofft brother favorites such as H.R. Pufnstuf, Hanna-Barbera’s Banana Splits, and more.
