World of Wonder Storefront Gallery

“A zany art scene and gallery that both celebrates and skewers the industry town’s mystique.” –LA Weekly

The World of Wonder Storefront Gallery was home to a pop art and the pop culture revolution. Located two blocks east of the world famous Hollywood & Highland, it was a place where high art and low brow collide. Opened in August 2007 on the former site of a Hollywood Boulevard sex shop, the gallery underwent extensive renovations.

Growing quickly from underground sensation to a mainstream notoriety, the World of Wonder Storefront Gallery frequently attracted international press attention, and has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, New York Daily News, Times of India, UK Daily Mirror, Us Weekly, Art US, and on MTV, Fox News, and internet sites TMZ, E! Online, Perez Hilton, Reuters and Yahoo News. Frequent contributors to the group shows included New York society photographer Patrick McMullan, to up-and-coming art world superstars Jamie Boling, Corey Smith and Jason Kronenwald.
