We asked just over 50 artists to pick one of their favorite LP album covers, and then use it as a canvas. We told them not to do too much, but just put their little spin on things, creating a brand new piece of artwork from it.

Each 12 x 12 inch album cover is framed in a black album frame under glass.
Please note that the condition of each album ranges from mint to good.

If you are interested in any of these pieces please call [Gallery 1988] at 323.937.7088.
Thank you!

The exhibit runs from Oct. 7th to Oct 31st.
In Los Angeles, CA
