Renowned Sony-owned developer Naughty Dog, known for the Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter, Uncharted, and The Last of Us franchises, turns 30 years old this month. To celebrate, the studio will put its art on display at a gallery in southern California for all to see during its two-week event starting this month.

The exhibit, called "A Tribute to Naughty Dog: 30th Anniversary," will be available to see at the Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, Calif., which is about 25 miles east of Naughty Dog's office in Santa Monica. The Naughty Dog gallery will be on display September 27-October 12.

Special events are planned for the premiere on September 27. Attendance is free, and the first 30 people will receive a limited edition anniversary pin. Naughty Dog artists will also be in attendance at the event, and they'll draw your favorite character. Free drinks, a food truck, and photo opportunities are also lined up for the special event.

A full-length video marking Naughty Dog's 30th anniversary has also been produced, and special screenings will take place October 4 and October 12 at the Gallery Nucleus. You can watch a trailer today (above), while the full video will later be published online.

Naughty Dog's most recent release was July's The Last of Us Remastered for the PlayStation 4. The studio is currently working on 2015's Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and potentially a sequel to The Last of Us.

The studio was formed in 1984 by Jason Rubin and Andy Gavin as Jam Software. The studio later changed its name to Naughty Dog, and was acquired by Sony in 2001.
