To Promote the BUY ART SAVE THE KITTENS Show at Corey Helford Gallery, August 26th-September 30th, Los Angeles-based artist Angie Jones created something special for her submission - AUGMENTED REALITY.

Using your mobile device, point your phone at the provided QR code, and a portal opens to reveal a mysterious cat looking at you from a 360-degree view. Gold stars circle the kitten as it spins out of the portal.

Angeleno cat lovers rejoice. Corey Helford Gallery is partnering with local feral cat rescue Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats to produce a cat-centered exhibit featuring some of Los Angeles’ most renowned contemporary artists.

All proceeds from the exhibit will be reinvested back into the South LA-based nonprofit to secure food and medical care for the city’s feral cat population. This show marks the fifth iteration of “Buy Art Save Kittens” and the first showing at CHG.

The show will also feature artists Angie Jones, Alison Friend, Sage Vaughn, Stephanie Inagaki, Catgods, Mat Crumpton, Atlas, Praxis, Javier Mayoral, Phobik, Analy, Marina Yermakova-Timm, Kalon Fowler, Matthew Robinson, Fabez, Rachael Ferris, Jazie, JD King, Michael Delahaut and Cats Rule All.

More than just a fundraiser, the show is a groundbreaking exhibit in its own right.

WHEN: 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26
