Art Show in February

The Otis Board of Governors and the Ben Maltz Gallery are pleased to present on February 10 – April 15, 2006
From the Island of Misfit Toys: an exhibition of artwork inspired by toys
Curated by Meg Linton, Director of the Ben Maltz Gallery & Public Programs
Artists: Elizabeth Berdann (blu), Deborah Brown, Nathan Cabrera, Jonathan Callan, Jeroen de Vries, Dan Goodsell, Kelly Heaton, Walter Martin & Paloma Muñoz, Anne Walsh, and 8 Bit Weapon.

Friday, February 10, 7-10pm Reception for the artists with live music by 8 Bit Weapon, model car dancing performance by Jeroen de Vries (Jevries), and special guests Mr. Toast from The Imaginary World and Santa Claus.

From the Island of Misfit Toys looks at how fine artists are manipulating toys to create sculpture, video, and music that push the boundaries physically, emotionally, or conceptually to address larger themes of consumerism, the surrogate, and death. Through exaggeration of scale, excessive use of material, and do-it-yourself methods, this exhibition introduces a set of artists who are blurring the lines between creative fields and taking toys to humorous, thoughtful, and poignant places.
