The Carnival is on the occasion of the 10–year anniversary of Kenny’s Kosmic Krylon Garage, which features his whimsical spray-painted murals that greet the Museum's visitors. Kenny Scharf gained prominence in New York City's East Village in the 1980s for his ambitious, cartoon-like installations and paintings. His practice exists in the realm where pop culture meets science fiction, and his imagery celebrates everything from the Jetsons and the Flintstones to one-eyed creatures, mischievous monsters, and donuts in space.
Proceeds from the Kosmic Krylon Carnival benefit the PMCA’s mission to present the breadth of California art and design through exhibitions that explore the cultural dynamics and influences that are unique to California.
