2 Fun Things from Our Friends at Gallery Nucleus!

April 11, 2019

We love supporting our talented friends! Gallery Nucleus is a long-time buddy and fellow lover of art, illustration, and children’s books. They’ve got two amazing things in the works: a super-exciting Kickstarter and a special event, this Saturday with RCC artists, Jon Klassen and Christian Robinson!

First up, we are so excited about a new Kickstarter Project that Gallery Nucleus and some talented artists are cooking up. Artwalks: Kids Shoes Based on Kids Books is an exciting new idea by Ben Zhu of Gallery Nucleus, in collaboration with some of today’s top children’s book illustrators like Jon Klassen, Joey Chou, and Scott Campbell.

ARTWALKS is dedicated to creating a platform based on adorable printed footwear to support and promote a variety of deserving children’s books and illustrators. This Kickstarter campaign is the beginning of our journey to develop a line of children’s footwear that will inspire a love for art and reading in kids one pair at a time.”

The idea that kids could be excited about wearing shoes with their favorite book characters on them is something we can definitely get behind! Click here to watch the full video about the Kickstarter and to add your pledge. Rewards include enamel pins, signed books, pairs of shoes and original art work. You won’t want to miss getting involved in this one!  

Next up, Los Angeles! This Saturday from 2-5pm, RCC artists, Christian Robinson and Jon Klassen will be participating in a joint book-signing event at Gallery Nucleus! Grab a copy of one of their newest children’s books and get them signed: Another by Christian Robinson and Circle, Square and Triangle by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen. Stop by, say hello and check out the rest of the gallery, which is a treasure-trove for art and illustration enthusiasts. Plus, there will be book readings, activities, photo ops and more. Until then!
