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 Clearfeild (MUS ’21).
Support for this exhibition from the VPA Graduate Memorial Scholarship and Fellowship.

Public gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, noon to 5:00 p.m., or by appointment.
