On Saturday night, the German street art duo, Herakut, held their first U.S. gallery show at one of the most exciting up and coming local art spaces, the Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art in West Hollywood. Both Hera and Akut were there to meet fans and prospective buyers, who have bought several pieces and put many on hold. The show, titled Streichelzoo ("petting zoo" in German), runs through May 4. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 2:00PM - 7:00PM, and by appointment.
