On Saturday, October 19th, Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA hosted a Big Bang Theory bonanza to celebrate the opening of their latest art exhibition dedicated to all things Big Bang! The exhibit compromised more than 50 pieces of original art with several of the artists on hand to discuss the inspiration behind their pieces.
Among the exhibit's most unique pieces was a set of hand-crocheted miniature dolls representing each character. The artist, who has created similar doll collections for several TV casts, says the project was particularly special because her son is a lifelong fan of the show. She estimated that each doll took approximately 8-10 hours to construct. How many long division problems do you think Sheldon could solve in that time?
Despite his aversion to social events, we suspect Sheldon (and the rest of the gang) would have felt right at home based on the festive food available. The attendees that came out to take in the art also enjoyed Big Bang Theory themed treats including personal-sized boxes of Pad Thai and of course, cheesecake for dessert!
The interactive event featured a trivia challenge, costume contest and a Scavenger hunt (a la Raj's version from earlier this season!) Fans were even encouraged to take part in the art with bedazzle your own Penny blossom and glitter tattoo stations.
The gallery had a specific section spotlighting a selection of props from the show including Howard & Raj's 3-D action figures, Amy's painting for Penny and more!
Overall, the evening was a true celebration of The Big Bang Theory and its fans! If you're in the Los Angeles area, the exhibit runs until November 10th and is most definitely worth checking out.
