4th Annual Designers in Toyland!

Make sure to join us Wednesday, December 5th in the lobby of MOCA for our 4th annual Designers in Toyland. This year’s event will focus on our community as local artists put their talents to work benefiting an after-school program for children in the Brooklyn and Riverside communities.

Our Design for Good partner, Don’t Miss a Beat, provides amazing programs to youth in our town, helping to teach valuable skills in a variety of areas from performing and creative arts, to civic engagement. Those students paired up with our local Designers to draw up and create their very own characters this year, and since then, the artists have been hard at work bringing their ideas to life as a 3-D toy.

We’re all looking forward to seeing the fun and imaginative toys this year, as we put a twist on Designers in Toyland!

We’ll be looking to our friends in the local community to help sponsor each of these toys, with all proceeds going to Don’t Miss A Beat. For information on Don’t Miss a Beat, visit their webpage, http://www.dontmissabeat.org, and find out more about their organization and how you can help.
