While you are oogling over the treasures on exhibit, look out for works by New York-based artist KAWS (born Brian Donnelly), famous for his ability to blur the division between high art and mass-produced products in his iconic sculptures, such as the deconstructed toy pictured above. His limited-edition vinyl toys recreate the goofy characters from the Simpsons, Mickey Mouse, and SpongeBob SquarePants. After his launch into the global art realm, KAWS expanded his work to make collaborations ranging from sneakers for Nike to beer bottles for Dos Equis. Go check out these zany pieces up close and personal before the “Art & Toys” exhibition ends this weekend!
