Our favorite pizza-loving, good time-having Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are 30 now (yes, that makes us feel old). And in celebration, the iam8bit gallery in Echo Park is throwing an art show with works inspired by the turtles, their buddies and enemies.

Opening night for the exhibition is on July 19 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., and it runs through to July 27. Expect some artists from around the world paying homage to the popular show through different art forms (including knitted dolls), and even some fans in cosplay.

The TMNT franchise is on the up and up lately. Nickelodeon's revamped series recently snagged an Emmys nomination for Outstanding Animated Program, and the feature film (with Megan Fox as April...) is set to release on August 8.

iam8bit is located at 2147 W. Sunset Blvd. in Echo Park, (213) 908-6154
