Over the years Orsi PR has enjoyed promoting dozens of gallery events showcasing Hello Kitty and friends inspired art pieces.

We are excited to be talking about the Hello Kitty, Hello Art! book release and gallery show that took over New York City. The event at Openhouse Gallery in Soho marked Sanrio’s first art event in NYC and featured artists from the book as well as beloved fashion designer Betsey Johnson who did a print release for the event. International graffiti sensation DABS MYLA was onsite painting a custom mural.
