The Munny has no face, though it does boast some innate character. It's seven inches tall, comes in black, white or glow-in-the-dark, with or without accessories, and in the small world of limited-edition vinyl art toys, it's the ultimate invitation to decorate as you please.
Plastic Chapel, a toy nook at 8 West Ellsworth Avenue, and Capsule Gallery, 554 Santa Fe Drive, have put out a call for DIY amateurs hankering to do just that, and they've also invited a mob of local artists to submit entries for the Follow the Munny show, which opens June 9 at Capsule with music, an online auction and much hands-on hoopla. Don't hesitate: The deadline for entries is Wednesday, May 31; get an entry form, pay the $10 fee and buy your Munny at a discount at either location. You could become the lucky winner of what must be the Holy Grail of collectible toys, a signed Kozik Smorkin' Labbit figurine. Call 303-667-6246 or 303-623-3460.
March 1-May 31
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
