If you were around in 1975 you may remember how terrified people were to go swimming after Jaws scared people into thinking a great white lurked off every shore. As terrifying as it was (and still is, to many), sadly sharks are in more danger from humans than we are from them. Did you know 200 sharks are killed every day, just for their fins?
To celebrate the shark in pop culture and raise money for conservation efforts, an awesome exhibit is coming to L.A. for three days only. From November 1-3, the nonprofit group PangeaSeed, artist Craig Drake and Hero Complex Gallery present "Smile, You Son of a Bitch! An Art Tribute" featuring original art from 90 international artists. It's only $10 at the door, there's an opening reception from 6-10 p.m. Friday, November 1, and all proceeds go directly to PangeaSeed’s conservation and education efforts.
The Hero Complex Gallery is at 2020 South Robertson Blvd., Studio D, Los Angeles, California 90034. Get map, directions and more
