We are at it again with an event celebrating Jacksonville’s art scene. “For the Love of Munny,” a vinyl toy exhibition and toy drive curated by Wolf & Cub will run during the month of December at the shop. The show will feature a collection of vinyl toys, affectionately named “Munny," from specialty maker of designer art toys, kidrobot. Each individual collectible toy stands 6” tall and will be designed, painted, destructed, and created by some of our amazing Jacksonville-based artists.
From painting and illustration to street and graphic arts to fashion design and mixed media, the broad selection of participating artists celebrates art in many different mediums. The impressive list of of talent include many Jacksonville favorites including Tommy Armageddon, Nick Villalva, Crystal Floyd, Dustin Harewood, Matt Abercrombie, Amy Ploss-Samson, Ed Hall, Chip Southworth, Jessica Becker, Henry Gonzales, Rob Middleton, Overstreet Ducasse, “Metal” Mark McCombs, Russel Quadros, Lauren Trump, Centism, Margete Griffin, Joseph Shuck, Chris Sellen, Mark Creegan, Ryne Samson, Roosevelt Watson, plus ourselves—Varick Rosete, and Emily Moody-Rosete playing along. Some of the unique Munnys will be available for sale during the show and will make an interesting, one-of-a-kind gift for someone special!
The show opens with a celebration on Saturday, December 2nd from 5 to 8 p.m. Wolf & Cub will continue the celebration during December Artwalk, Wednesday December 6th, from 5 to 9 p.m. with the show closing on Saturday, December 30th.
To coincide with the toy theme and the season of giving, Wolf & Cub will also be collecting toys for underserved youth during the run of the show. Bring a toy in on the opening evening or during December Artwalk and receive a 20% off shopping pass (good for use that night only).
We're super pumped to bring the Munny show back to Jacksonville and can't wait to see what the artists come up with! See you on December 2nd!
