I was notified today by a member of the Magoski Arts Colony in Downtown Fullerton about an art exhibit that I TOTALLY missed out on. Art with an Agenda: An Exhibit Inspired by Kelly Thomas was on view at PAS Gallery through July ’12 and I am really bummed that I didn’t get a chance to see it. It featured the original work of over 40 local artists, all of which created and donated artwork inspired by the life and circumstances surrounding the death of Kelly Thomas in July of last year. It got a lot of media attention and had a line around the block of people wanting to view the extremely moving pieces.

To help the family of Kelly Thomas, send donations to: Kelly Thomas Fund, P.O. Box 1147 Cypress, CA 90630 or visit the Kelly Thomas Memorial Fund website.
If you missed out as well, here is a slideshow and some videos all about it.
