Candy emporium Sweet! (the mega-store’s 28,000 square-foot flagship) at Hollywood & Highland Center is partnering with renowned artist and conservationist Wyland to launch the first-ever Wyland gallery in Los Angeles. In celebration, Sweet!, Hollywood & Highland, and the Wyland Foundation LLC are commemorating the grand opening with an all-day event melding art, conservation, and candy (from a chocolate station with Food Network’s top winning chef Richard Ruskell to an experiential 24-foot Wyland Interactive Mobile Learning Center for kids).
Bringing together Wyland’s art with the world of candy, in support of water conservation, the partnership will introduce a whole new line of Wyland candy, chocolate, and chocolate sculpture as well as Wyland original artwork and giclees with a percentage of proceeds going to Wyland’s Foundation.
The first-of-its-kind, Wyland Gallery of Hollywood will be located inside the South Side of Sweet!. Renowned for his famed murals, Wyland has been a leading advocate in the effort to protect the world’s ocean resources for more than twenty-five years.
Delicious surprises await everyone who visits Sweet! Hollywood, the newest and most ridiculously fun candy store the world has ever seen! Now open at Hollywood & Highland, the colossal candy store is comprised of interactive candy games and never-before-seen candy boutiques.
