From mid-February to early March, a small art gallery called Q Pop in L.A.'s Little Tokyo district hosted a "Star Trek" art exposition featuring sci-fi creations from more than 80 artists. The show, titled Beam Me Up, offered a unique and often amusing take on famous characters and scenes from all things "Trek," with works ranging from an imaginary play date between a young Spock and Data to a larger-than-life Picard playing a flute on top of the Enterprise.
Aside from an out-of-this world collection of art, the gallery hosted the band Tune in Tokyo (playing "Trek" music) and served Romulan Ale as well as other refreshments. Want to feel like you were there? Check out the remaining "Trek" art still for sale at the Q Pop store.
Artist Kevin Sukho Lee created "Neon Spock" using fluorescent acrylic on an illustration board, which would undoubtedly look trippy when exposed to a black light.
