The winners will also be flown out to Los Angeles to attend a VIP opening reception.

Original pieces will be up for auction on eBay from 11/13-11/23, while prints of select originals will be available for purchase on eBay from 11/13-12/12. Sales benefit UNICEF Kid Power, an innovative new program that uses the world’s first Wearable-For-Good to get youth physically active to provide lifesaving, nutrition-rich food packets to kids in need around the world in the name of Star Wars: Force for Change.

Gallery 1988 could not be more excited to have been involved in this project for going on 3 years since our first meeting with Bad Robot about the possibility. We’ve now been a steering force on marketing campaigns for LOST, Breaking Bad and The Force Awakens, and to be able to involve charity in all three has been a dream come true. We hope to see you at this very special exhibit.

Gallery1988 (West)

Special hours on both days will be 11 AM – 10 PM
