The collaboration began when the New York-based toy company moved its headquarters to Colorado a year ago and NEXT sought to make a connection. "We found a lot of commonalities with Kidrobot. We both like to do a lot of community outreach," says co-director Dan Ma. In addition to the new toy and the artwork, tonight’s event will feature a four-foot-tall toy coated in chalkboard paint that the artists – and visitors – can draw on throughout the weekend.
A Playdate With Kidrobot opens at 6 p.m. at NEXT Gallery, 3659 Navajo Street. Truth or Dare: Folklore and Mythologies runs through April 14. For more information, visit nextartgallerydenver.com or call 303-433-4933.
