Dragon Ball 30th Anniversary Art Exhibit Announced
Dragon Ball will turn 30 years old on December 3, 2014 and a huge art exhibit will take place in LA to honor Akira Toriyama and the series.
It was recently announced that a tribute to Akira Toriyama will take place in LA in honor of Dragon Ball’s 30th anniversary. Here are the full details.
We are extremely excited to announce an art show celebrating the legendary Akira Toriyama! The creative mind behind mega-hits like Dr. Slump and Dragon Ball, Toriyama stands today as one of manga’s most influential and successful figures. He has also contributed to the video game industry, with character designs for Dragon Quest and Chrono Trigger.
We will have Dragon Ball 30th anniversary/Akira Toriyama show (and all future shows most likely) at our second, brand new location in Japanese Village, Q2 mini Gallery! We hope that you would come share this exciting time with us and the co-curators of the show, Chogrin and Irene Yuen.
The show will take place on Saturday, November 15th. It will span Toriyama’s entire illustrious career and celebrate the immensely-popular Dragon Ball Z. This show will also coincide with FUNimation’s release of the Blu-Ray of the new Dragon Ball movie.
In case you cannot come to our opening reception, the show will run until Dec 6th, so don’t fret!
Participating artists include:
James Mateyko (Komboh)
Mercedes Crespo (Yema Yema)
Hannah Nance Parlow
Abigail Dela Cruz
Mingjue Helen Chen
Ruben Alcalde Crespo

I am truly jealous of those who have the opportunity to see this exhibit. If you’re a big Dragon Ball fan and live in LA then you definitely do not want to miss out on this awesome exhibition.
