More Than A Toy
April 26 – May 22, 2021
More Than A Toy is the first exhibition to highlight designer art toys as a medium for engaging with today’s most difficult conversations. This two-part exhibition places new focus on the innovators working in this cutting-edge art form and the topics they are tackling including mental health, climate change, the drug epidemic, COVID-19, racial injustice, environmental degradation and more.
More Than A Toy offers an overview of the history, design processes and mass market appeal that elevated designer art toys from niche collectibles to a recognized contemporary art form.
Curated by Ethan Clearfield (MUS ’21).
Support for this exhibition from the VPA Graduate Memorial Scholarship and Fellowship.
