For twenty years, the heroes of Law & Order have navigated literally hundreds grotesque tragedies, moral quandries, and improbable crimes. They’ve also been the inspiration behind such artistic works as “Death of a Bully,” “A Suspicious Nasal Spray!” and An Egocentric Poet’s Journal.” The three are just a few of the eclectic and entertaining pieces included in “These Are Their Stories,” the Law & Order-themed exhibit currently on display at the Gallery Meltdown.
Each piece is an artist’s interpretation of a one-line episode summary from the DirecTV program guide. Like the series that inspired them, they are sometimes straightforward and sometimes offer a twist; sometimes they contain no easy answers, and sometimes they are just plain goofy.
Featuring works from more than 40 artists, “These are Their Stories” runs July 24 to July 30, at Gallery Meltdown, 7522 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90046.
Cake, ice cream, and snacks will be served all day opening day, as well as at a special reception the night of the 28th.
