A showing of Arrested Development tribute art opens Friday night at Gallery 1988's Melrose location in Hollywood. Its name? "There's Always Money In The Banana Stand."
The art in the exhibit depicts iconic moments from the show, delves into the characters (David Cross's Tobias Fünke seems to get the most love from the artists, with numerous depictions) and takes a slanted view at the characters of the beloved show. The styles range from fine art to pop poster to stuffed plushee.
It's part of the current Arrest Development cultural renaissance. The show started as a cult Fox TV sitcom that was widely acclaimed but never gained a large audience. It took place right here in Southern California. Fox kept the critical darling going for three seasons, though they cut the last season's episode order down.
