200 years!

It's hard to believe, but it's been 200 years since that rainy afternoon Mary Shelley was challenged to write what became, arguably, the first science fiction novel ever written.
In celebration, artist Chogrin curated this show at the Corey Helford Gallery in downtown Los Angeles decided to create a 100 artist group show, dedicated to all the aspects of Frankenstein.
