Artwork: “Stitched T” by Cathy Pitters
Next week, Moshi Moshi Gallery in Portland will be hosting a cool group art show curated by Levi Pitters, a 10-year old Mr. T fan and artist (who also happens to be the son of Crafty Wonderland‘s Cathy Pitters). From the press release:

For the first time ever, twenty of Portland’s finest artists will come together to present “I (Heart) Mr. T” – a show of art based on America’s favorite Mohawked Messiah. Levi Pitters, a ten year-old artist and Mr. T enthusiast, came up with the idea and recruited some of his talented friends to create artwork dedicated to his idol. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of art in this show will be donated to a scholarship fund to help send 5th graders in Levi’s school to Opal Creek – a three day outdoor education program held in June. Mr. T would approve!

Featured artists include Bwana Spoons, Ryan Berkeley, Chelsea Fletcher and more. Link.
