‘Family Guy’ Art Exhibit Opens Its Doors To Fans

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The characters of Family Guy aren’t just comical cartoons anymore, now they are an inspiration to artists.

In fact, Los Angeles art lover Wendell Riggins is currently putting together a Family Guy art exhibit at the Museum of Television and Radio in Los Angeles.

The art exhibit opens up to fans on Thursday (Nov. 9) and runs through January 21, 2007 and features creative works by pop artists who are inspired by the Family Guy series.

Curator Riggins explains that the art works riff on the pop culture phenomenon of Family Guy in the same way the show riffs on anything and everything having to do with pop culture.

Says Riggins: “It’s art imitating art, and the paintings are hilarious.”

Riggins explains that the painting that started it all is a weird piece entitled “Meg-Roach,” where the dorky cartoon sister is painted as a giant, colorful cockroach.

Says Riggins: “When we saw that painting we laughed so hard that we knew the exhibit was going to be a good idea. We can’t wait until fans get a load of the art.”
