Give Me Munny

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'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
