Help us create an EPIC museum exhibition!
We’re thrilled to announce that we have been invited to exhibit original felt artwork from Star Wars Epic Yarns at The Strong – National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York from September 2015 to January 2016!
The plan is to house the fuzzy friends you see below in display cases for an estimated 175,000+ visitors during the exhibition.
We have an invitation, but we need the funds to make the exhibit happen!
In addition to the costs of shipping and mounting the figures, we also want to enhance the quality and educational value of our display with several oversized images from the books, reproduced as backlit images in LED frames, as well as with digital photo frames to show looping slide shows of behind-the-scenes images describing our artistic process.
We have been invited by The Strong to exhibit our work as independent artists. There is no corporate assistance, so we need your help.
Help us spark the imagination and creativity of thousands of children. Please help us make our exhibition at The Strong happen by contributing to our GoFundMe campaign. Thank you!
MORE ABOUT THE STRONG:
We speak from experience when we say The Strong is an awesome museum! Here’s Holman’s son oohing and aahing over a display of Star Wars toys last year:
According to Forbes magazine, The Strong is “one of the most unique and impressive children’s museums on earth.”
The Strong — The National Museum of Play — is a not-for-profit, family-friendly history museum with the most comprehensive collection of play-related artifacts in the United States. Each year, over 550,000 guests enjoy its dynamic, innovative exhibitions and events that explore play to encourage learning, creativity, and discovery.
In addition to its general collections, The Strong is also home to the International Center for the History of Electronic Games, the National Toy Hall of Fame, and the World Video Game Hall of Fame.
