Bradley's House at KNVS



KNVS is an art inspired restaurant and bar that creates menus based on the theme of the current art exhibition.  From June 30 until the end of the year our theme is “Bradley’s House.” Bradley Nowell, the frontman of Sublime, was taken from us far too soon. His family established The Nowell Family Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit, to create “Bradley’s House” a recovery center for people in the music industry struggling with opioid addiction, regardless of their financial situation.



KNVS will be exhibiting artwork from prominent artists from the Nowell Friends and Family.  Along with this artwork is a call for submission for artists across the nation to express their love for what Bradley Nowell gave to our world.  If you know the beauty and struggles that Bradley went through in life, express it with your portrayal and allow us to preview it.


Only 2D artwork will be accepted.
