One of the many reasons I need to move to L.A.: art shows like Gallery 1988's Garbage Pail Kids tribute that features artists reinterpreting and recreating characters from the iconic ’80s trading card series.

The gallery is also screening the Garbage Pail Kids Movie at Cinefamily tomorrow, with co-stars Mackenzie Astin (brother of Sean) and Arturo Gil in person!
