Artists at Play

Toys Designed by Artists
Arkansas Arts Center--Little Rock, AR

Creativity and ingenuity transform the idea of "toys" in an artists hands...
In the early 1970’s the Arkansas Arts Center initiated an annual exhibition of toys designed and made by artists. Inspired by Alexander Calder’s circus figures of the late 1920’s and early 1930’s, this exhibition will stimulate the imagination of both adults and children through colorful, skillfully made, and wildly inventive toys. Educational activities for children will be an important component of this exhibition, as well as a collection of hands-on toys for visitors of all ages. >>continue>>
