Los Angeles Celebrates 25 Years of Street Fighter With “Combo Attack” Gallery Exhibition

on July 31, 2012 8:13 PM

Celebrating a culture of hadoukens and mashing until it works, Combo Attack is a gallery fan exhibition that pays homage to the legacy of Street Fighter with art from over 50 artists around the world. Set to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter, the exhibition will grace Los Angeles this Friday, August 3rd. The art will “dive into the mythos and the characters” of Street Fighter and grace fans with a number of celebratory perks.

Free to anyone, the celebration will kick off at 7PM and last until 11. Fans of all ages can participate in the gallery’s features including a 6-foot pinata recreation of the original “BONUS ROUND” sedan. Fans will also be able to reenact their favorite signature moves on a street fighter photo playset that will insert them into a scene directly from Street Fighter itself. To give the celebration a little flair, a 17-foot high graffiti wall by famed LA street artist, Leba will line the background of the celebration. All in all it sounds like a great time.
