In honor of our newest exhibit "Let's Play!: Children's Toys and Games", we invite you to come build your own toy at the museum. We'll provide the supplies, you provide the imagination!
Local artist Ann Hobgood will create a piece of art that everyone is invited to help paint. The community-made work of art will be hung in the museum's entrance-way for July's Last Friday. This will take place at the museum on Last Friday in May and June. Come out and paint!
This exhibit will feature toys and games from local collectors. The museum will display and sell whimsical artworks by Ann Hobgood and Barbara Younger.
All of the proceeds from Barbara Younger's works will benefit the museum's programming.
The opening night reception for Let's Play! will be April 26th. Free and open to the public.
To coordinate with the exhibit, there will be family-friendly activities throughout the summer and an art activity led by Barbara Younger on October 6th.
This exhibit explores a small sampling of Barbie and GI Joe figures from the 1960s onward and highlights the heteronormative gender roles these toys reinforce.
Free and open to the public.
