This past weekend marked the opening of the Museum of Art and History's exhibition "The Art of Toys". This exhibition celebrates the last twenty years of modern toy making and the artists that have centralized the movement. In the 1990s toy making became another outlet for alternative artists and from there the genre grew into an entirely new art form. This exhibition takes a look at this artistic evolution and celebrates the artists, companies, and people that made it happen.
From Hifructose magazine:
" 'The Art of Toys', as the exhibit sets out to demonstrate, will discover that urban toys are more than collectible figures for cool adults – they are extensions of a growing modern art movement that continues to push the boundaries in style and medium."
