Showing through April of next year at the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) is an exhibition celebrating the 40th anniversary of Hello Kitty. Although the subject matter is not for everyone, some of the artists involved in this show in Los Angeles certainly should be familiar to our readers, including Colin Christian (interviewed) who contributed the piece seen above. Along with original artwork, the first large-scale Hello Kitty museum retrospective in the United States also had a selection of related products on display, with rare and unique items from the Sanrio archives. For those who want to see Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty, please note that it is a specially ticketed exhibition.
