SpongeBob SquarePants x Louis De Guzman x J.Balvin

In November of 2019, fine art and cartoon lovers alike were invited to immerse themselves in De Guzman and Balvin’s contemporary take on Spongebob’s underwater world in celebration of the show’s impact on pop culture. Located in Chicago, De Guzman took over an activation space for five day filling it with the collection of eclectic art pieces, apparel, and home goods curated in gallery format, for the public to enjoy. Opening night boasted over 1,500 attendees and hundreds more throughout the duration of the exhibition.
