A six-person artist collective in Highland Park called THIS Los Angeles is asking for the public's help in tracking down a piece of art that was reportedly stolen last night from the opening of a new exhibit called These Friends.According to the THIS Los Angeles website, as the opening night crowds were leaving and cleanup was underway an unidentified person grabbed a piece of art from the wall -- a personal piece not for sale -- and ran out the front door of the gallery space.

The now-missing artwork is artist Jason Lee's one of a kind 8×10 Polaroid of the late Dennis Hopper. Lee has put up a $25,000 dollar reward to anyone who brings back the sentimental piece. Notes the THIS Los Angeles website, "The thief can come forward anonymously and charges won’t be pressed against him." The collective is asking anyone with information to call 323-747-5301 or email this@thislosangeles.com.
