TOY TO THE WORLD PROJECT 2012: EXHIBITION & AUCTION
Address: 1 Spring Street, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia 3001
Date: OPENING NIGHT - TUESDAY 15TH JANUARY
EXHIBITION/SILENT AUCTION RUNS: 15ths Jan - 4th Feb
Toy to the World is currently a biennial charity art event involving a custom vinyl toy design competition that provides both the opportunity for public to witness art creation happening live and the chance for artists to exhibit works while contributing their creations to help raising funds to go toward HIV research in the hopes of improving the lives of those affected by it. The event is split into two distinct parts, the Design Day launch event where artists can collect a plain white vinyl toy and begin work live with provided paints and markers; and the Exhibition & Auction where all the complete works are judged by respected industry judges and displayed while a 2 week silent auction runs. Artists may pre-register their interest for a time slot on the Design Day, or may register to receive a vinyl toy to complete before the Exhibition.
