After we did the first one of these with Kidrobots Munnys, we saw what people could do, says Plastic Chapel co-owner Dea Webb. Seeing everyones take on them made us want to open it up more. Open it up they did, putting out a call to artists for any type of toy. That means there will be more than Munnys, which are essentially a blank canvas for toy designers, including a whole collection of different toys mashed up, improved upon and manipulated. The crowd will have a chance to vote for their favorite toy, and the winning designer will walk away with a prize.
DIY or Die starts tonight at 7 p.m. and runs through April 8 at Plastic Chapel, 3109 East Colfax Avenue, and the Shoppe, 3103 East Colfax Avenue; admission is free. For more information call 303-722-0715 or visit www.plasticchapel.com.
