Artists Help Boy, 12, Curate Major Art Show for Bullying Cause

Family Life - Kids

Painting depicts boy art curator "Super Cooper" at 12A superfan of all things art in Los Angeles, Cooper Berella, wanted one thing only for his 12th birthday -- to be able to curate an art show for his favorite cause.

"Stop It!!" opened Saturday at the Munky King Gallery on Melrose Avenue, featuring works from around 100 contemporary artists on the theme of bullying and cyber-bullying.

The young painter with long, flowing hair has been regularly taunted for being different, and hopes the exhibit will open hearts and minds.

Some of the proceeds from art sales will be donated to 2 of Cooper's favorite organizations.
