A Tribute to Naughty Dog: 30th Anniversary

September 27, 2014 - October 12, 2014

Sep 27, 5:00PM - 9:00PM

Gallery Nucleus is excited to announce an art exhibition and book launch with video game company Naughty Dog in honor of their 30th anniversary. Both our main and atrium galleries will be home to over 60 pieces of production artwork as well as tribute artwork created in honor of some of their wildly popular games: Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, Uncharted, and The Last of Us

Guests attending the opening reception will be able to win prizes, receive exclusive gifts and other commemorative items. Ten of the Naughty Dog artists featured in The Art of Naughty Dog book will be in attendance greeting fans and signing books. The event is an excellent way to get a behind-the-scenes look at Naughty Dog's creative process and to connect with the talented artists who help bring the company's game universes to life and celebrate the continued success of Naughty Dog.  The book will be released on Sept 27th and available in-store or online at that time.  No pre-orders will be offered.
