When: Mondays. Continues through Sept. 20 2008
The Mend Project's second endeavor, The Altered Toy, calls for artists to take existing toys and reuse them to create new toys. The altered playthings are marked by sewing a Mend tag onto the newly created toy. The possibilities are endless, but it is requested that at least one part of the original toy is used and no sharp edges stick out. The goal is to create 100 toys which will be donated to the Children's Home at the Warm Springs Counseling Center. Artists can contribute as many toys as possible to the project, and in addition, are invited to create "auction" toys that will be auctioned off at a couple of fund raiser shows benefiting future Mend projects.
